Concerning the matter of the renovations here in Dominic’s land, we have a lot of news to share as well.
We’ve just completed the work on the roof of the guesthouse. The house is so beautiful now! Well at least the roof. We still have to manage the rest of the work. Our visitors are very excited and they look forward to seeing the whole renovation. We have just signed the agreement with the architects, and we are preparing the next steps of pre- plans, draft proposal and trade consultation. Now, the roof of the Basilica also needs to be repaired and we’re extending the schedule of this project. This will be in the topic of our next news!
Our fundraising is progressing very well: we’ve raised more than $250.000 in donations. People are very generous. Two Foundations are supporting us also. I look forward to having more concrete information to share with you. As soon as our Community agrees with the drawings, plans and prices of the architects, we’ll let all our friends know.
All sectors of the Community are very involved in this beautiful project. First of all during our Office our first duty is to pray for and meet our visitors in special moments of grace. Then, each day the sister cook has a lot to prepare, the guest house keeper sister has a lot of people to welcome, the craft sisters have a lot to design and make, and our prioress has a lot to manage!
We receive the strength we need by celebrating the Eucharist every day and by reciting and meditating deeply during the Holy Rosary. This is where we meet all of you, our beloved friends, in the wonderful communion of the saints.
We praise God for your blessed presence, for your support, and we ask our Mother Mary to protect you always.
Your Sisters at Prouilhe Monastery
