Our Lady of the Angels Chapel Renovation

True beauty elevates the heart and opens it to an encounter with the Beautiful One, Christ Himself. As such we are renovating our chapel to make it a place that is beautiful and set apart, where friars and visitors can withdraw and allow the Lord to speak to their hearts.

To accomplish this, we have turned to local artists to create original art so that every element of our little chapel will be prayerfully and skillfully crafted. This renovation is a communal effort, a work that will not only rebuild our chapel but that will edify the Church has a whole, that brings people together in unity with the shared vision of drawing souls into the holy and burning Presence of God.

We are looking for patrons to be a part of this community and to support this work of creating gems in the desert. If you would like to join us in this mission, you can view our needs below and follow the link to donate.
