New Store and Welcome Center

Here is the architectural drawing of the new Store and Welcome Center


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 the Building Committee discussions near an end, we would like to offer you a mini-tour of the  new store.

Welcome to the Abbey Store.

The entrance will be graced with beautiful hand-crafted doors.

Once inside the store, you will be enticed by the aroma of Monks’ Bread, other Abbey baked Goods and various monastic products.


Just around the corner from the bread area you will find a new and spacious book display.


Once you have browsed to your heart’s content and chosen the items you wish to purchase, the cashier is conveniently located at the front of the store to accept your payments and package your purchases.


And this brings us back to where we began. We hope you enjoyed this little tour.


New Gatehouse and Lobby

The Abbey gatehouse and lobby is an integral part of our Welcome Center.


Our desire is to create a space that will invite solitude and reflection. With this quiet space, people will be able to prepare to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation and to collect their thoughts as they prepare to engage in sessions of spiritual direction.

Here is the architectural drawing for the new gatehouse area. [8]

We also have picture of some of the furnishings for the area.
