How and what we're building

Projected Buildings_edited.png

"The Project is quite simple..."

 The principal motive of this Project is to provide the Faithful with a place they can come to in order to be spiritually strengthened and nourished by the practice of Prayer, and the example and instruction of Franciscan Friars. 

โ€‹

 For this reason, we have modeled the layout of the property with three main areas:
 

- "The Heart and Center" - Franciscan Convent & Chapel.

-"Solitude and Prayer" - Retreat Cabins for Families and Individuals.

-"Retreat House" - A Lodge built for Group Retreats, Conferences, and Formation.

Timber-Frame Construction

 One of the major advantages of this land is the incredible abundance of tall, soft and hard woods conducive to Timber-Frame construction.

 

 For this reason it seemed to us that the most cost-efficient and lasting way to build would be to harvest the trees on the land and build using the traditional Timber-Frame method to construct small and large buildings.

"The Heart and Center"

Brighter - Heart_and_Center.webp

Convent and Chapel

 The Heart and Center of Holy Annunciation Retreat will be the Franciscan Convent of the Marian Friars Minor, and a public Chapel for use of the Faithful. 

โ€‹

 The Convent and Church will be designed and built according to the traditional "Square Layout", which allows for a proper Religious Observance for the Friars and open access to the Faithful to attend Mass and Divine Office.

Retreat House

Group Retreats

 A large, roughly 40-Person Lodge will be built just below the area of the Friary in order to provide the faithful with sufficient accomodations for organizing group retreats and conferences.

โ€‹

   The close proximity to the Convent and Church will facilitate access to daily Mass and participation at the hours of the Divine Office
