On behalf of the community please accept our thanks and appreciation for all so many of you did for us this year. We have accomplished a lot in 2013 at Our Lady of the Holy Cross as a result of your ongoing support.
Our year-end wind-down is in full swing (not too late to send in your year-end contribution if you haven’t yet), and we continue to make the improvements we told you we would make with your contributions. The monastery is painted, the new roof is almost done, and our ‘monk-raising’ is keeping pace with our fund raising…two postulants here and doing well and another couple on the way.
Today in the refectory I saw Jim visiting again who made me smile when he said he was soon heading home to ‘wrap things up and come back for good.’ That’s music to our ears as we continue to build HCA with new monks and new look and a new ‘re-founded attitude.’
We can’t do it without you so if you would like to discuss ways to give to the monastery don’t hesitate to call me at 540-955-4604 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be glad to discuss with you how we use contributions and how you can help.
May you have a blessed Christmas and know you are in our prayers always.
