Emmaus Phase I Construction Update

We are excited to share the progress of preparing residences for our retired priests at Emmaus. Due to the overwhelming generosity Emmaus donors, the diocesan office of ecclesiastical properties and Ovation Construction, Inc. began preparing the site at San Pedro in early 2021. Horizontal development was completed in the fall and vertical construction on the Phase I duplexes is now underway and with an estimated move-in date for the first five residents in Summer 2022! Phase I will also include the completion of the priests’ community center.
