Here is their letter:
Most of the new wing will be extern use: guest rooms, gift shop, guest dining room, etc. The bottom floor will be much needed work space for us. By building the new wing we’ll also be able to make our chapel handicap accessible. We know some people who make their Adoration sitting in the car in front of the open doors of the chapel. Sort of drive-through adoration, I guess! But they can’t get up the stairs so that’s the best they can do.
We have never had what you might call “big benefactors”. Our monastery was built with the dimes of many, many friends who bought a brick and so “brick by brick” our monastery was built. We need to raise $4 million for our new addition, driveway configuration and renovation of the existing parlor, reception office and guest bathroom and hallway to the chapel. It’s a lot, we know, but this is Summit, NJ and EVERYTHING costs so much more here than in other parts of the country.
Thank you for whatever you can do to help us. Please be assured of our prayers and pray for us!
In Christ and His Holy Mother,
Sr. Mary Catharine (for Sr. Mary Martin our prioress and all the Sisters)
