If the Lord does not build the house in vain do its builders labor.
Can you help us build a chapel and convent?
What We Need
We are currently using a converted garage as a chapel and our main living space is the A-frame house (pictured above). In 2015 we completed Phase One of our project: a small building with cells (like bedrooms) and a multi-purpose room.
Phase One Building
The A-frame, built in the 1963 as the "main lodge" of a summer camp, has no foundation and poor insulation. As a result there is mold throughout the house and animals seek refuge underneath. To replace this building, we plan to build a full convent including kitchen, refectory, library, common spaces, cells, and work rooms.
The garage chapel is not well insulated and humidity has caused the ceiling and walls to become black. It is cold in the winter and sweltering in the summer. We need space so guests can comfortably pray with us. Our plans also include a sacristy, meeting rooms, and a gathering space with bathrooms.
