Sisters of the Presentation honored by Holy Trinity Catholic Church in San Pedro
Holy Trinity Catholic Church in San Pedro dedicated the Fireside
Room of its Parish Center in honor of
Sisters of the Presentation (of the Blessed Virgin Mary) on Saturday, January 14, 2012.

Presentation accepted to staff Holy Trinity School.
Property for the convent was purchased at 209 North Hanford Avenue in San Pedro.
Holy Trinity Parish and School greatly benefited from the presence of Sisters of the Presentation.
Several young women from Holy Trinity would eventually become Sisters of the Presentation.
Sisters of the Presentation left Holy Trinity in 1990 and the convent
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.
The Fireside Room contains pictures of the Sisters, artifacts saved from the convent, and
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.
