"Come and help me build the Monastery of San Damiano, because ladies will dwell here who will glorify our Heavenly Father throughout His Holy Church by their celebrated and holy manner of life."

Site Tour

Hello Everybody. We ventured out the website earlier this week and took the good ole flip video camera (thanks Jill for this WONDERFUL gift). Hope you enjoy the little tour of the site. Towards the end of the video, Sr. Marie St. Paul gives you the low down the positioning and lay out of the modular homes. ENJOY!!!!

The Dome has found its home...

What an awesome day!  The dome was lifted and looks so beautiful atop the chapel.  If you are driving on I-10 West near Tonopah, you can see it in the distance!  WOW.  Step by step we see this dream turning into a reality.  We hope you enjoy the photos and video! Join us in thanking Our Lord for the wonders of this day.  Our Lady of Lourdes, Pray for us!

High in the Tonopah Sky...

What weighs 30,000 lbs and can perch 75 feet in the sky?  The DOME on the Chapel of Our Lady of Solitude in Tonopah, AZ!  After the remaining materials are placed on the dome (after it is hoisted to its perch), the total weight will be nearly 60,000 lbs.  The top of the cross will be at 75' above finished floor elevation.
Tomorrow this 28 foot high dome will be hoisted!  Pray for the success of this endeavor.  Our God is an amazing God!  I will upload video and photos of the event ASAP!  Our Lady of Lourdes, Ora Pro Nobis!
