The construction of the Church apse and the first phase of the bell tower is now almost halfway complete.  All the concrete has been poured, and now the masons are busy building the circular chapels and will soon raise the transepts of the Church to their definitive height.  The project should be completed in the late fall, and enlarge the upper Church for our monastic liturgical ceremonies.  We are currently trying to raise enough extra funds to finish the inside of the sanctuary with brick and stone.  Thank you to all who have already contributed to help make this happen.  Please pray for this project, and give thanks with us to God for the many blessings He has poured out on Clear Creek Abbey. If you would like, you can donate online now.  God bless you!
