We know, we know. You’re wondering WHERE IS THE NEW CHURCH? We are too! It’s almost done; we are waiting for the floor to be stained, then we will install the furniture and be ready to welcome you back home to the Abbey.

The MIW weekend, May 19-21 is now full so we won’t be taking any more reservations at this time. We will, as in past years, create a waiting list in case someone cancels…if you wish to be placed on the waiting list please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

While we’re waiting for the Academy Award people to call, I thought it might be helpful to provide some answers here on our web site to some of the questions we’re receiving about the PBS documentary about the abbey, Saving Grace, Saving Place that was recently released: How has the film been received so far?

The wait is over–our new–mobile friendly–website is up and running. Same great news and information in an easier to read format. Enjoy and let us know how you like it.
