The framing work is well underway

Our roving blog photographer was outside capturing the action this morning as our monastery workmen, Jeff McNamara and Gary Williams continued constructing the new greenhouse under our second-storey cloister. The greenhouse will be the winter home for our St. Dominic's Orange Tree. The carpentry knowledge and muscles involved in constructing the greenhouse went beyond our nunly powers. However, one sister has expressed keen interest in staining the structure (and herself in the process!). Please pray for Jeff and Gary's safety and continued construction enlightenment!

A moment of deep concentration

Careful, guys! Moving the roof beam into place
