Appeal from the Hermitage of the Holy Cross

The brotherhood of the Hermitage of the Holy Cross in Wayne, WV, is in need of your help and prayers. His Grace, Bishop George of Mayfield, sent out the following appeal yesterday:
Dear Fathers,

Christ is Risen!

Please ask people to pray for the monks at Holy Cross Monastery in WV. They have had heavy rainfall and now there has been a mud slide next to the newly built carpentry workshop. It has exposed 5 feet under the foundation and the concrete floor has cracked. Engineers say it will cost $17,000 to fix and they can't get to it til Tuesday. The monks will now try to fix it themselves and are renting equipment.

+Bp George
