Recently, His Eminence, Metropolitan Philip blessed the hiring of DSA Architects to work with Mother Alexandra in translating the vision for the Convent of Saint Thekla into viable plans for the buildings to house a monastic community and provide a place and space for prayer and work.
On November 1, 2010, Mother Alexandra met with Douglas Shoop at the Antiochian Village. They toured the building site and met to discuss details for the production of 3D renderings and schematic drawings. Please continue to pray for Mother Alexandra and for women to consider joining her in living the monastic life at Saint Thekla Convent. Also, please remember Douglas Shoop in your prayers - that God will guide his talents and bless the work of his hands.
