DormRenovation Project

Seminarian MJ Arienza, a rising senior from the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, shares his thoughts on how these renovations will impact him and his brother seminarians.

Former Dorm Room

The residence halls haven’t changed much since the first seminarians moved into the dorms at Holy Trinity Seminary in 1967.

New Dorm Room

Thanks to your generosity, fresh paint, new floors, new lighting fixtures, ceiling fans, new furniture, new countertops and new blinds welcomed the seminarians when they arrived in the fall.

A huge THANK YOU to our Hall and Room Sponsors for helping us reach our goal! 

If you’d like to make a secure online donation to help fund all the odds and ends that will spruce up the dorm rooms, make your gift here.

 Thanks to our sponsors and donors
