New Doors for Chrisminster

from the Christminster website:

There is an old saying that when God closes one door, he always opens another. As the door closes on our 5–year history and stay in Hamilton, Ontario, we are happy to find new doors opening up to us. Friends of the monastery here and abroad have offered us several options for new locations. Among these is the offer from our good friend, Anglican Archbishop Peter Goodrich to move into the parsonage of his pro-cathedral in Niagara Falls, New York. Another offer, which for the time being must remain confidential, is for a church and living quarters in a large mid western city. A third option is the offer of a church and abandoned monastery with cemetery also in Niagara Falls, New York. We have also had an invitation from a monastic aspirant to explore the possibly of moving to Newfoundland. We ask your continued prayers for the wisdom to know which of these doors God wishes us to walk through. One earthly goal of the Benedictine life is peace, and it is in God’s will and not ours that true peace may be found.
