St Benedicts Priory Renovation Cobh

The nuns at St Benedicts Priory urgently need funds to renovate their old building so that they can continue to pray the Divine Office, Adore The Eucharistic Heart of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and offer true Benedictine hospitality.
Hour by hour they pray for the personal needs of all who knock on the door of the Priory, for the needs of the local community, for Ireland, the Church, and the world.

The Priory's ancient heating system needs to be entirely replaced, there is no attic insulation and there's an urgent need to deal with mould and mildew, problems which are a health risk for the sisters in the Cloister. There is extensive damage to every area of the building due to cold and dampness. The Priory needs new boilers, pumps, radiators, and plumbing.  Walls and ceilings throughout the building need repair.
The sisters will be most grateful for any donation to help with the renovation so that they may continue joyfully praying for us all.  
 All donations go directly through this site to St Benedicts Priory, Beechmount, Cobh, Co Cork. Ireland. 
For more information please write to Mother Prioress.
May God bless you !!!
