CONSTRUCTION IS PROGRESSING ON
THE GATEHOUSE RENOVATION PROJECT
Thanks to modern technology and a creative architect, we are able to give you a bird’s eye view of the proposed store. This picture is a little more interesting to look at than the plain drawing.
As you can see from this picture, when people come to the abbey, they are only seeing a small part of the monastery. They come to pray in the church. They take advantage of the silence and solitude of the gatehouse parlor. Some come seeking guidance, counsel and the sacrament of reconciliation. Some come shopping in the gatehouse store, seeking to buy some delicious treats to munch on or a good book to feed their soul.
As monks, we have committed ourselves to seeking God in prayer and solitude. A part of our search for God includes extending hospitality to the many people who visit the monastery. The renovation of the church enabled us to provide a beautiful and elegant prayer space where monks and guests can offer the Divine Majesty a sacrifice of praise.
Come Pray with us!
With the completion of the church renovation project, we have decided to move on to the next phase of our Master Plan for the abbey: the renovation of the Gatehouse.
