Fund an Item - Support the Sisters

In 1990 a convent was built behind the Monastery at The Grotto to house four Sisters from the Congregation of Oblates of St. Martha, based in Saltillo, Mexico. These wonderful Sisters take care of the Monastery and cook the meals for the Servite Friars. The Sisters also ensure that the Chapel of Mary and other worship spaces are clean and decorated for the liturgical celebrations hosted by The Grotto. Their dedicated service is vital to The Grotto continuing its ministry of being a place of peace, prayer and natural beauty for all people.

The convent is now in need of repairs and many day-to-day items are worn out. And, as part of the renovation, the Sisters will have their own kitchen and laundry room for the first time.

We are asking for your help as we replace and upgrade the Convent. We need everything from mattresses to appliances.

Thank you for your support of our dedicated Sisters.

Loving God,

As the heat of summer rises, we pray that you send your strength and protection for all of your creation. We pray especially for our less fortunate brothers and sisters, those who do not have decent housing to protect them from the weather. May the coolness of your love and mercy preserve and shield them. May they feel your love and mercy everywhere they go. We ask this of you Lord, for you are the King of all creation, you who live and reign forever and ever.
