The renovation of the monastery is a collaborative long term work. We are blessed with a winning team. Here, in the priory church under renovation, you see our brilliant architect, Adrian Buckley together with a young Spanish intern from his office.
Studying plans in the garden outside the priory church are (left to right): Frank Brennan (Project Manager); Father Prior; Sean Ascough (Engineer); and Adrian Buckley (Architect).
View of the priory church. Beyond the white metal fence is the monastic cemetery. The nave of the church will contain the monastic choir. Two transepts, to the right and left of the sanctuary (not visible) will be reserved for visitors. The priory grounds seen here will be part of the monastic enclosure, open to outsiders only for the procession on the feast of Corpus Christi and similar outdoor liturgical processions.
Here you see the side of the priory facing east. On the lower level you see the windows of the refectory. On the first level you see the windows of the temporary Oratory. Once the renovation of the church is complete, the temporary Oratory will become the library.
