Ave Maria!

Here is a video of the construction on the new Marian Friary of Our Lady Coredemptrix which started on March 25th, 2010 on the Feast of the Annunciation and shows the process up through August.The friary will be 22,000 square feet and have room for 28 friars with two floors, a partial basement and a bell tower that will be 86 feet high. The bell tower will have 3 bells from a local church that recently closed and the top 16 ft will be an illuminated cross. The friary is being built adjacent to the existing chapel on the property and will have direct access to the chapel's main floor from the friary's 2nd floor and to the chapel's basement from the friary's first floor.

The planned opening is spring 2011. Keep this project in your prayers.

Below are some pictures of some more progress since the video was taken. We will keep you posted
