FOR LOVE OF THE IMMACULATE HELP US RENOVATE MOUNT SAINT FRANCIS
The friars ask for your help to carry out the mission of Mount Saint Francis entrusted to us by Our Lady. Here one can enter into prayer, find silence, and strengthen their faith by making a retreat in one of the cabins on the property. To provide our retreatants with the best experience we must address some pressing needs.
During the past year (2014) the old friary of St. Anthony’s underwent an extraordinary change; now it is in use for group retreats and monthly meetings of the Mission of the Immaculate Mediatrix (M.I.M.). We look to continue the work of needed renovation of cabins and other buildings on the property. We would greatly appreciate the help of anyone and everyone with lawn care, wood cutting, painting, etc.
We also need to address significant water drainage and pavement issues. Heavy equipment is needed for excavating, grading, and then laying down the surface. At the moment the heavy equipment we have is inoperable. The purchase of new equipment or renovation of existing equipment will help with long term needs.
In the name of Jesus and Mary we ask for help in all of these areas, whether it is through prayer, labor, or financial assistance. We look to St. Maximilian Kolbe as our model and trust in Our Lady’s intercession. In speaking to the friars about the generosity needed to be instruments for the Immaculate, he said, “Love is real when it is increased through sacrifice. Those who possess this disposition will reach the heights of perfection.”
