Expansion Update: Challenge Met!

Thanks to the support of many donors and their contributions made through the mail, online and GoFundMe… we have met the Matching Gift Challenge offered by the Fr. Edward E. Sipperly Foundation which ended on October 31st!

thank youWe’ve raised $100,000 since July, which will now be generously doubled by the Foundation and giving us a strong footing in our Monastery Expansion Campaign to purchase the 77 acres adjoining the 3 acres of the school and chapel. Our bank has given us a written commitment for a loan and we hope to close on the property by the end of the year.

However the Campaign is still very active as we will have a loan to pay off as well as a need for funds to begin expanding the present farmhouse into the new and much needed Brothers’ House.

A giant Thank You to all our donors who helped us meet the challenge! God will generously repay you for your gift!

Please share our ongoing need with those you think would like to help us build up this little piece of the kingdom of God here in Still River. All for Jesus through Mary!
