Our Lady has opened another door in our quest to have a permanent home. On the feast of her birth, I took a drive to check out something I saw on line. It was a retreat center which was also dedicated to her. I got to meet the director and we had a nice talk about the property and I learned that she needed to sell the property because her health was no longer strong enough to be able to run the place and do the work.
The property already has several buildings in place, these include: a dining room, a two story conference building, 4 dormitory building which can house a total of 100, a Catholic chapel, and an office. We would have to build on the extended property a residence for the monks we hope to attract, an Orthodox Chapel and a generic Christian Chapel.
We are not looking for one person to make a large donation for any one particular need. Any amount that you can donate will make you a founding member. With your tax deductible donation, a small plaque with the names of our founding members will be placed in the monastery chapel.
God blesses those who bless him. Jesus looks kindly upon anyone who follows him and his plan of salvation. My friends, pray and look into your hearts to see where the Lord Jesus is directing you.
