Oblate Doug McKenzie recently finished a 3-year project, building a 1:48 scale model of the brigantine Leon. Leon was a cargo ship built in Norway in the 1880s by shipbuilder Colin Archer. A museum in Larvik, Norway is going to display this model, since Larvik was Colin Archer's home. Doug and Pat brought the model to Baltimore earlier in November where a crate was built around it; the model is being shipped to Norway this week. You can see a series of short 1-minute videos that Doug and Pat developed, showing the model and giving more details on the project. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrvbpb4NUFvcML_ufEV3rWg

THANK YOU TO OUR DONORS!
Thank you to all our donors who raised over $480,000 to replace our 114-year-old septic system!
Next, we hope to replace the Convent stucco, St. Marguerite's roof, and restore our cemetery.
Thank you for supporting our Capital Campaign to help us continue God's work in our sacred space.
It's easy to help!

and in the "purpose" section of your online donation type "Capital Campaign."
Thank you for supporting our ministries of retreat and spiritual direction which are needed more than ever in today's world.
The State of New Jersey recently stopped giving grants for repairs to religious structures, so this has taken away half our funding for repairs and restorations. The COVID crisis has also negatively impacted our funding for these projects.
