Holy Trinity Fire—Insurance Settlement and Appeal

[Why the Church Is Dying IV will be posted next week]

Holy Trinity Church and its insurers have finally come to a settlement of 70% of the estimated costs of fire cleanup and replacement.

The estimated total was 4.9 million dollars
The insurnace company will pay 3.7 million dollars.
After fire cleanup costs, the church is left with 2.9 million dollars.

The church realistically can raise only 200,000-300,000 dollars, and that is stretching it.

It will now have to downsize its architectural plans considerably because of the reduced amount of money available, including the Hall, central to the life of Juneau's Arts and Humanities.

Holy Trinity is more than a church: it is the Arts hub of the community.

If you can make a donation to help rebuild, please email

May you have a blessed Triduum.
