Progress on the Angel Windows

There has been much going on in the Bovard Studios in IA with our stained glass windows.  With the recent donations, we were able to send Padre Pio to production as well as 8 of the 9 angel windows for the cloistered adoration chapel.  Below are some of the progress shots of their production. 

It's not too late to donate toward the Mother Teresa Window or the Pope John Paul II window...as well as several other windows that have not yet been paid for.  Check out this link for all the details!

Turning Dreams to Reality In Many Different Ways!

On February 12th, Heather and Bill Lattin (sister and brother-in-law to Sr. Marie Andre and Sr. Marie St. Paul) and friend Diane sponsored a dinner and silent auction to raise funds for Our Lady of Solitude Monastery.  Local priests, friends, fellow parishioners all came to enjoy the fellowship and donate toward this cause. It was a joyful event - complete with taco bar, silent auction, and many nice people!  We are so grateful for the funds raised through this event. 

If you are interested in sponsoring a dinner to help raise funds for Our Lady of Solitude Monastery, please contact us: desertnuns@msn.com

Our Hearty THANKS to Heather, Bill, Diane, and all that made the night such a smashing success!!!
