After an interruption of more than four years, we are delighted to have the construction crews back to continue building the abbey. The work now involves not the abbey church, but a much-needed west wing of the residence building to house the growing number of monks–currently least a third of the monks are housed outside the completed residence building Our architect Mr. William Heyer, is developing the plans of our first architect, Thomas Gordon Smith, of recent memory. Father Abbot announced this intention in a letter to friends, and again gives details on the project in another letter to friends. Below you can see the progress of the construction, and even videos by the Manhattan construction company.
More construction photos can be found in the Construction 2021 Gallery.
