The church ought to be a building that will serve for generations. It should transcend time and culture… the church ought to be of a significant mass, built with solid foundations and thick walls. This is related to durability… a good solid mass of stone enables the church to be an icon of Christ and reflects the solid base of the Sacred Liturgy…
— Rev. James W. Jackson, FSSP "Nothing Superfluous"

From the Catholic World Report

Mother Therese of Merciful Love, OCD serves as subprioress and novice mistress for the community. She is originally from Massachusetts, and entered the Valparaiso community at age 17 in 2003. She recently spoke with CWR about her community….

CWR: How do you provide for your needs?

Mother Therese: People in the local community…

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.
