This from John Michael:
Peace and Good in Christ!
Our need for emergency donations in this ice storm natural disaster has come
sooner than we expected!
At 12:30 AM last night the main generator at Little Portion Hermitage died.
We believe that it is irreparable. It is a 40+ year old generator from an
old nuclear missile silo, with most of its parts very old and irreplaceable.
So this is not terribly surprising.
We are planning to replace it with four or five smaller new generators that
are better suited to our emergency needs. This will be an overall investment
of around $25,000, and hopefully less. In a way, this mechanical failure has
brought to light our need to be better prepared for such emergencies at the
monastery.
The community is in very good spirits, but a week without power gets very
old. They are saying that we may be days or weeks before power is restored.
No one will say anything for sure. At this point we simply do not know.
We know that the economy is bad, but we are asking for your generous
donation to help us with this necessary expense. Will you help?
Thank you.

In Jesus,
John Michael Talbot
Founder, and Spiritual Father
The Brothers and Sisters of Charity at Little Portion Hermitage
