Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration, Our Lady of Solitude Monastery, Tonopah, Arizona
"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." -St.Francis speaking of St. Clare and her Sisters
Everyone seems to be asking us how we are preparing for the dedication of the chapel on May 7th. Bit by bit... A little bit here and a little bit there - and slowly things are really shaping up. On Saturday, Joe and Steve came to install the Tabernacles and the angels in the cloister chapel. WOW. It looks really awesome. Really, really awesome. Sr. St. Paul is busily making the altar linens and Sr. Esther Marie is busily preparing for all the sacristy needs. All the altar candles were delivered today! It's so exciting seeing everything shape up and near completion. The pews will be installed in about 2 weeks.
