Trinity Episcopal buying properties to build children, youth center

From Alabama-

Trinity Episcopal Church is purchasing lots to the east of its Dauphin Street sanctuary with the intent of building a ministry center for children and youth, a church official confirmed Monday.

Bob Howard, senior warden, said Trinity had closed on the purchase of one lot and was waiting to close on a second piece of property adjacent to it. The two, both located to the east of the church, have a combined purchase price of about $150,000.

A third lot nearest to Trinity has been owned by the church for about 15 years, he said.

Houses on the two properties, as well as Trinity itself, suffered serious damage in the Christmas Day tornado last year. The houses, Howard said, are beyond repair and will be torn down.

“Hopefully, we’ll be able to use all three of those lots together to build a children and youth ministry center and also provide additional parking,” Howard said.
