I had a note from a priest reader today about the progress the Wyoming Carmelites are making with the building of their new monastery. HERE
I thought you might appreciate a little note about the Carmelite Monastery in the works in WY — whose coffee you so dutifully promote.
Their plans are well under way, and should be extraordinary when finished. The monks themselves continue to assist in the work of construction, especially the stone masonry. I have attached a few pictures below to see the current state of things. It’s amazing to think that so much has been built in just over a year. I believe they are hoping to be finished in a little over three years. They are working to have a true monastic enclosure and site — and this is a very well thought-out plan.
They’ve also said that their coffee sales have gone a large way to paying off their expenses — especially all the stone they’ll be using. They were grateful for your support.
They are a holy, joyful and hard-working group of monks, and it seems the Lord is calling them to great things. I have little doubt that their monastery will be a pilgrim destination for a long, long time.
Here are some photos which he sent:
They used a “J”! UGH! Thank heaven it isn’t chiseled in…
When you buy Mystic Monk… this is what you are helping to build.
Bean by bean!
