The construction on the monastery is coming along rather nicely.  The art in the monastic refectory, chapter room, and hallways is serving to adorn the new space, making it a place which glorifies God through its beauty.

Br. Michael is coordinating the artistic efforts and finishing some of the work begun by the professional artists.
