Artists Maria Szopinski and Lalo Garcia, have been commissioned to produce and restore artwork for the interior of St Lawrence Martyr. Maria is restoring the Bas Relief style statues. Bas Relief is a style in which the figures project slightly from the background (pictured below). 

Lalo Garcia is doing several pieces that depict the “Communion of Saints” including, Mother Theresa, Mother Mary, St Lawrence Martyr, St. Kateri and more. These large scale portraits will be installed around the altar and predella. HABC recently visited Lalo Garcia in his studio and got a glimpse of the amazing progress. Stay tuned for final photos of this project.

HABC has started Church renovations at St Lawrence Martyr. This project will include structural renovations, lighting, and many interior finish upgrades. There will be some beautiful custom artwork features incorporated in this project by Lalo Garcia and Maria Szopinski that will highlight areas of the altar and reredos. Pictured below is the informal groundbreaking.

This video features the site for the future Queen of Angels Seminary. Demolition, and new construction will turn this existing abandoned property, into a fully updated 17,000 sq. ft. retreat center with a new chapel, 42 living quarters, offices, classrooms, hydronic radiant heating system, two-story elevator and energy efficient cool roof.

 

HABC recently completed a new exterior all-weather canopy at St James in Redondo Beach. New doors, hardware and an exterior lighting system complete the renovated entrance that will welcome parishioners into the Church.
