"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

Thanks to NAU students who traveled a long way to take part in the Run!
 The 3rd Annual Nun Run was a great success!  It was great (and uplifting) to witness the exuberant excitement of all of our supporters - as we continue to see our dreams turn into reality.  With the Chapel construction completed (some appointments still remain to be donated for - primarily the stained glass windows and the choir stalls), we now turn our gaze toward the building of the Monastery, the enclosure wall, and adding landscaping to the property.

We thank you for your support in the past and we ask that you continue to support our mission of establishing a contemplative cloistered monastery in the heart of the Arizona desert!

a glimpse of the good things yet to come!

The New Windows *AWESOME*

On July 19th, Bovard Studios got to work installing the recently completed Nine Choirs of Angels Windows (in the Nuns' Adoration Choir), as well as St. Pio and Bl. John Paul II (which we were funded for by donations received on the website! A great big thank you to everyone who donated for these windows).  All of the windows look BEAUTIFUL and bring the chapel nearer and nearer to getting all the finishing touches.  There are still 10 large Saint windows for which we are fundraising.  Soon these will be listed on our website with an opportunity for you to donate online. 

Enjoy the photos and check back soon for more updates!
