The Sacred Stones, Sacred Stories project has provided us with so many changes and WOW moments…but perhaps none greater than the remarkable changes to the southern view of our Clyde monastery:
This is what our monastery looked like just one year ago. To make room for construction equipment, we had to sacrifice some of our beautiful trees. Fortunately, we will see them again – just in another form. The wood was saved, to be used for future projects.
After the areas slated for deconstruction were emptied, taking great care to recycle a variety of materials like bricks, wood, windows, hardware, light fixtures and even bathroom tile, crew members began removing the southern portion that edged the inside courtyard.
We’re so excited to see how this transformation has taken place. All the prayer. All the discernment. All the planning. The long days. It’s wonderful to see how the Lord has blessed us, and we can’t wait to open our home once again to guests, our friends in Christ.
