New Elevator for Community of St John Baptist

Can you give us a lift?

The Community of St. John Baptist was founded in 1852 in England, and our American Community began in 1874. We've been around a long time and now we're in need of a lift!

Our Convent elevator, which is a huge part of our ministry of hospitality and welcome, has finally breathed its last after serving us since 1960.  Since we don't have any miracles left to resurrect it, we're asking the public to help us purchase a new elevator to provide continuing ministry to the hundreds of guests who visit CSJB each year for prayer, rest and retreat. 

The elevator also provides our only access for handicapped visitors and overnight guests, since our restrooms are not on the first floor and our overnight guest rooms are all on the 3rd and 4th floor.

Will you help give us a lift? We would be so deeply grateful and we hope you can come visit us and enjoy a smooth, safe ride to all the floors of the Convent.

Thank you and God Bless!
