The groundbreaking of construction for a new church building off of La Pata, near San Juan Hills High School, is welcoming community members to join the start of the new Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The ceremonies will be directed by longtime San Juan Capistrano resident Greg Stapley and the new location will be the third Latter-day Saints meetinghouse facility in the region, a press statement said.

“We are thrilled to be building a meetinghouse for our many members and their friends in San Juan Capistrano,” Stapley said in the statement. “This new building will be a community asset and we look forward to hosting civic and interfaith events, as well as regular church services and events there.”

Stapley noted that an agreement in place with Capistrano Unified School District will allow San Juan Hills High School students to use the meetinghouse parking lot for much-needed overflow parking on school days, the statement said.

The event will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 17 at 29273 Stallion Ridge and is expected to have up to 500 attendees. For more information or to RSVP to the groundbreaking ceremony, call Amy Cook at 949.813.0182 or email at
