Help us renovate St. Nicholas House!
St. Nicholas House is a small ranch-style building added to the monastery in the 1970s. It has not received significant maintenance since its construction, and will quickly become uninhabitable without major repairs. Work on some near-by outbuildings will allow activities that currently take place in St. Nicholas House to relocate during the renovations, which include a new roof and changes to the interior floor plan.
The first priority in the renovation is replacing the roof, lest serious structural damage occur during winter rains. However, unless St. Nicholas House becomes functional as an infirmary building (with wheelchair-friendly entrance, hallways, bathroom, and cells), our elderly sisters will eventually become unable to live within our community. Thus, we undertake this project with the intention that the renovated building will make the monastery more welcoming to our elderly sisters and guests. We consider this project to be our duty as stewards both of the property God has so graciously provided, as well as of the aging community members He has entrusted to our care. We invite you to be a part of this important work through your prayers and financial support.
