At the residence of Cardinal Timothy Dolan we celebrated our ongoing success of our Monastery Campaign. We now have surpassed our goal of $500,000 and we are at the $510,000 mark and climbing. We still have one garden and few rooms left for memorial gifts.
The Kylemore Abbey Event was hosted by five Kylemore Abbey school alums in Washington, DC on Sept. 6. from left to right, Beth Rossman (Honeywell International), Sister Magdalena , OSB, Samantha Omey (alum) and Mary Reed (Kylemore Abbey Campaign). The Irish Ambassador, Daniel Mulhall, was our special guest and speaker.
WE RAISED $17,000 IN ONE NIGHT FOR THE MONASTERY CAMPAIGN!

The Benedictine Community and the Kylemore Trust has been granted planning permission for the new monastery. The new 2 and 3 story monastery building will be located near the existing community church and other structures on the lake. The nuns have been at Kylemore since 1920 and have never had a purpose built monastery.
Kylemore Abbey is a protected structure. All environmental, construction and ecological mitigation measures set out in the Ecological Impact Assessment and Natural Impact Statement must be implemented. Construction will start sometime this year.
