Raise the Roof!

12 April 2017

We have made an unexpected discovery here at the Abbey!

Our builders went to repair/replace some broken slates —and got the shock of their lives when they discovered that all the woodwork underneath was rotten. A miracle that it did not collapse on top of us! For this we are grateful. Everything had to be removed, and rafters and ceilings all replaced. The roof is now in the process of being slated and is an unexpected expense.

Raising money to pay for it is a daunting task for a non profit organization so we are inviting everyone who loves Glencairn Abbey to sponsor a slate for €10. We need 12,000 slates.

I thank all who have contributed so generously to our new bedroom block. Thanks to you, our sisters are now enjoying their new rooms.

We will keep a record of each person who sponsors a slate and will pray for all of you. We hope that in years to come you will visit Glencairn Abbey and see the results of your goodness.

In anticipation of your generosity, we thank you and keep you in our prayers.
