July 2019

We’ve made several adventurous trips to the new property lately. On June 24th, our fundraising committee reconvened for an update on the progress of the campaign. In between rainstorms and thunderstorms, and maneuvering through layers of mud, we made it out to the new site again, for a beautiful view of the site in its lush summer green.

Early in July, some family members and benefactors also spent an afternoon traipsing through the property, bravely scaling the heights of a craggy rock formation.

Rezoning of the parcel of land for the new monastery site itself is tentatively scheduled for October.

Visitors climb  Saint Peter’s Rock to get a bird’s eye view of the sisters’ new property.
