An important part of the development plan is to build the nuns a purpose built monastery, something they have never had. The nine nuns currently live in two locations, a farm house on the property and a guest house off the property. The building will allow them to grow their order, house guests, visiting clergy with room to host retreats. The new monastery will be located on the lake close to the other main buildings.
The monastery campaign goal is $500,000; the campaign was launched by Cardinal Dolan on May 26, 2016 at his residence. As of now we have raised $211,000 towards our goal.
