Thank you for your donation. You should receive an email shortly confirming your donation details.
As a Sustainer you are an integral part of our monastic community. St. Benedict tells us we are to be self-sufficient, requiring us to have ways to generate income. Donations are an important part of our ability to have the resources to run the monastery and Retreat Center, our new natural cemetery and natural farm (see much more information about these initiatives elsewhere on our web site), take care of our aging monks and reach out into the community to encourage men to consider the contemplative life.
As a Sustainer we consider you part of our community to be prayed for and appreciated because you are allowing half of your donation to run the monastery and half to support our effort to attract new vocations.
Soon you will receive more information about your role as a Sustainer including detail about our Annual Sustainers Event held at the Monastery in the fall. And we will be sure to keep you up to date on all the exciting things happening at Our Lady of the Holy Cross Abbey on a regular basis.
Should you find yourself visiting the monastery we would love to say hi, and if you have questions or thoughts, just send email to firstname.lastname@example.org and our Companion will respond in a timely manner.
Again, thank you and peace to you and your loved ones.
Companions of Our Lady of the Holy Cross Abbey
