Lightning struck at the monastery and caused the main building to catch fire on Thursday, June 15th. As a result, the sisters temporarily have no place to sleep. They are in need of mobile homes to be set up on the property until their building can be repaired. While insurance should cover the cost of the damages, it won't cover the cost of the temporary housing they need, and housing all of the sisters will be a large expense. As all of us in the area know, the sisters are our family. Please contribute what you can in their time of need.
If you'd like to donate directly to the monastery, you may do so by sending a check to 121 St. Elias Lane, Saxonburg, PA 16056.
