851 N. Avers
We are the proud new owners of 851 N. Avers- quite the handyman’s special. See pictures below.
After the renovations, this building will be used to house volunteers / retreatants. Without this house, we would soon have to significantly curtail the number of volunteers / retreatants we’d be able to accept.
Within a year, the sisters will need the full second floor of the convent as living space. Female volunteers / guests will use the 3rd floor of the convent, and male volunteers / guests will live in this new house. The property is directly adjacent to the convent- the perfect spot to expand our guest space!
Additionally, we will use the backyard for more parking and extended garden space.
It cost $89,000 to purchase the house and there are many $1000s of renovations to come. If you’d like to donate, DONATE HERE. We are very grateful for anything that you’re able to contribute to this important project.
