We are using these virtual ‘bricks’ to keep you updated about the Monastery and to ask for your support for our current projects.
At the moment, we are trying to manage several projects at once (we dedicate our summers to offering hospitality and leading pilgrimages, so most of the physical work is left for the winter time). We are now trying to raise the funds to pay for the first pieces of furniture to go inside our 1755 church (Kilninian – the Church of St Ninian and St Cuthbert) and our Chapel of St Sisoes of Egypt and St Brendan the Navigator.
Because we really have no church furniture at all, at the end of our pilgrimage to the painted monasteries in Moldavia, I have contacted one of the carpenters there and I commissioned these pieces:
– 2 Icon Stands (one for Kilninian, the other for the Chapel)
– 2 Gospel Stands
– 2 Choir Stands
– one Stand for the Central Icon of the Mother of God (this is more expensive, so I only commissioned one).
Please consider buying a ‘Founding Brick’ to help us pay for these. Pretty soon, we shall return to more mundane projects (we need a toilet for the people who attend services, we need heating in the old stone church, we need to restore the vestry room etc) – right now, it feels such a blessing to be asking for support for objects that will go inside the church and will help us in our services for decades to come.
Thank you for everything. You are the blood that keeps this Monastery alive – may Christ bless you beyond your hopes.
Our Founding Bricks are virtual products. They work as donations from your home to our Monastery.
Although you are offering us virtual bricks, we shall turn them into real building materials, real labour and everything else we need to keep working for the Monastery. Pay attention! These are very special brickes and they come with great and amazing powers – the power to travel from your home to our small island; the power to support a remote Monastery you may never visit, but where prayers will be offered on your behalf and on behalf of the world; most importantly, the amazing power to express Love by building a nest of prayer to the world.
Note to our US Friends: If you would like to support us by offering a more substantial donation (for which we would be very grateful), please do so by sending a cheque to our US organisation (American Friends of the Celtic Saints) at the address below – ALL funds received by them are directed towards the founding and support of the Monastery. By sending a cheque, we can offer you a tax-receipt for your donation and we can send you updates about the Monastery. For whatever you can send, may God bless you a hundred-fold.
