The Saint Benedict Center in Still River, Mass., the monastic home to the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, needs your financial help in trying to expand their monastery.
The Center is home to one of the longest-continuous locations for the Traditional Latin Mass in the United States and the only thoroughly-Catholic school in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Immaculate Heart of Mary School, serving Grades 1-12 and has record enrollment this academic year.
The Brothers and Sisters signed a Purchase and Sale Agreement this past Spring to purchase 77 acres from a farmer who recently passed away, whose family can no longer upkeep the property. According to their Oct. 12th announcement, they need $11,509 to make the first stage of escrow, which will be doubled with a grant from the Father Sipperly Foundation. They need to make this goal by the end of this month or they will not be able to expand their monastery to accommodate for more vocations to their monastery et. al.!
The ultimate goal is $1.75 million to complete the sale.
This monastery is the only Catholic entity within the Diocese of Worcester that actually deserves your tithe money, so please give what you can!
