WE ARE SO VERY GRATEFUL FOR YOUR SUPPORT
On Friday, the 22nd of January 2021, we were given the keys to our new infirmary wing. We are extremely grateful to all our many friends and supporters who made it possible to build and pay for this needed extension to our monastery.
Mother Brigitte is guiding our moving in as we gradually put furniture together and make it a home within our monastic enclosure. Some of the fixtures will not be delivered until the beginning of May, so this process will not be finished until late spring.
When the ground thaws, we will be able to sow grass and wild flowers and begin the landscaping work.
We plan to make at least two videos, one of the new wing, and a new one about our monastic life here at Tautra Mariakloster which will include the entire monastic complex. We hope these can be finished in time for the summer tourist season 2022.
Though we are now able to close our capital campaign, which thanks to your generosity, has met the goal of a beautiful infirmary wing for our older sisters, we hope you will continue to support us primarily with your prayers. Of course, we can still receive donations through Oslo katolske bispedømme, our website Tautra.no, Facebook, Go Fund me, and by international bank transfer for our ongoing expenses.
May God bless you all abundantly, and let us continue to pray for each other as we strive to make the kingdom of heaven present on earth.
