Support our Monastery
Our hidden lives of prayer can be a waste of time, talent and energy in the eyes of the world that values efficiency, productivity and consumerism. For those who believe in the power of prayer, however, it is a life of wonder, awe and adoration. It is a life worthy of praise.
People of good faith, who believe in the success of the mission of the Church, have borne witness to the centrality of the contemplative life by supporting it from the very early centuries of the Church.
In our own day Pope Francis affirms the contemplative life:
Thank you for supporting our life. The contemplative life is at the heart of the Church's Apostolic mission. It depends greatly on the collective effort of the people of God.
Your generosity benefits both the receiver and the giver. It is in giving that we receive and in receiving that we grow in virtue. By giving, lovingly and generously, we grow in the virtues of liberality, charity, almsgiving and generosity. By receiving we grow in the virtues of gratitude, humility, magnificence (pertaining to the proper expenditure of money), and magnanimity. We all can grow by giving and receiving. Therefore, prayer, fasting and almsgiving work together to make our world a better place.
We are all in the mission of building God's kingdom in our world. Let us support one another.
If you want to know more please contact us via e-mail. Your generosity is highly appreciated.
Your donation will help considerable. Thank you!
What else do we need?
Sometimes people ask if they can give us something specific. We also need a large roasting pan, casserole dishes (corning ware), and a violin. If you have these or know someone that needs a new home for theirs please consider donating them to the monastery. Thank you and God bless you!
