We are building a monastery to last the ages.
“My price is… your prayers.”
Bill Oyler - from The Catholic Rural Life article, September, 2018
Catholic Rural Life has featured our Carmel in a 2-part story on their website!
Bill Oyler is a fifth-generation farmer in Biglerville, PA. He is more than familiar with the daily struggle of maintaining a healthy, organic family farm in the midst of today’s commercialized fast-food culture. Those struggles, however, haven’t stopped him from contributing his time and resources…
The time-honored skills and crafts,
solemn and sacred liturgies, music, literature, and even the very methods and materials our homes have been built from for centuries are are being brought back to life here in this small corner of the world. The strong stones dug from the soil by our forefathers and the simple, heavy timber beams of the past will be used to support this new monastery.
