Happily, we are just $12,500.00 short of reaching our goal of $38,000.00 for the purchase and installation of the boiler that heats water for our kitchen use, infirmary room, as well as radiant heat in the church, refectory, laundry and lobby.

Sincere and heartfelt thanks to all who have generously responded to this unexpected but necessary appeal. We do get by with a lot of help from our friends! Our prayers in gratitude for such loving care and support.

We are going forward with the purchase and installation of the needed boiler, which will be brought here and installed between February 17th and 19th.

Our Guesthouse and Giftshop remain closed, so our usual income for general operating expenses has been curtailed for nearly a year. All the more does the kindness of others warm us in this midst of winter beauty.

Thank you again!
