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.
Existing Dorm Room
This is what a dorm room looks like now – in 2021 – and we think this is more or less what a typical room has looked like since the first seminarians moved into the dorms at Holy Trinity Seminary in 1967.
Proposed Dorm Room
While we are still working on finalizing the design of the new dorm rooms, these photos give you an idea of what the new dorm rooms might look like. Overall, our goal is to give the seminarians rooms that are masculine in appearance yet warm and inviting.
