Glowing Facebook review (presumably on the closed group) from a satisfied Holy Martyrs attendee: "Best church I've ever been to in this area" says someone who, as a Grand Knight of the KofC, has presumably been to a number. A shout out to someone else involved in getting HM started, who pops up giving a five star review to a Catholic school in Murrieta four years ago. So if Bp Barnes was concerned that this would involve poaching local parishioners I think his fears were well-founded.The link is to an article in the on-line Temecula Valley Development newsletter, which is dated April 5, almost not coincidentally the same date as the letter from Bps Barnes and Lopes. It quotes an "official on site" -- presumably speaking for the contractor -- saying that the church will be adding a restroom and redoing the interior.
Recently someone complained on the FB page that after seeing FB pix of the renovations he had googled to find out more but all he could find was a brief article about the takeover of the former gym which mentioned "Catholic" but said nothing about the Ordinariate. Presumably this is the article referred to. There is a link to the parish website in it, but that website differs little from the BJHN site.
This says that a good deal of money was being spent, and work had begun, some time prior to the April 5 letter. Even so, publicity so far, nearly two months after the article, has been minimal. I think it's safe to say there's a lot we don't know, and we might speculate that we don't know it for a reason. I betcha Bp Barnes knows a lot of it, though.
