Update on the Poor Clares

As most of you know, a new monastery for the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration is being established here. Both they and we hoped they would be here by now, but work is still being done in the house where they will be living. The first thought was that there would be minor repairs and upgrades done before they took up residence. But once work began, one thing led to another, and the house basically has been gutted and rebuilt from the wall studs out. Some major reconfiguring of the floor plan has been done, and all of this work has changed their move-in date to sometime in July.

We're all eager to have them move in, and they're excited about beginning their new foundation here. Please continue to pray. I'll keep you updated.
