was replaced with the current Parish Center which was dedicated in 1993.
With the approval of Msgr. Joseph Brennan, the current Pastor of
permission was given to dedicate the Fireside Room in honor of
Sisters of the Presentation so that their legacy
at Holy Trinity will be passed onto future generations.

a special wall listing the names of the Sisters of the Presentation who have graced Holy Trinity
with their presence along with a wall dedicated to Nano Nagle.
