Today we celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Dedication of Our Lady of Solitude Chapel!  And we do so with hearts full to overflowing with gratitude…

This is a special celebration for us as we are just days away from completing construction on the new Our Lady of Solitude Monastery that adjoins the Chapel!  Keep the prayers coming and REJOICE with us as – through these photos – we look back over the last 10 years and give thanks to the Heavenly Father for the innumerable graces He has poured out upon our community and the many visitors who have come to Our Lady of Solitude.

We pray that the Lord continues to make our desert home into an oasis of peace for all who come.  We are remembering in our prayers all who helped to build Our Lady of Solitude Chapel.  In a special way we give thanks to God for beloved friend and benefactor Mrs. Connie Basha Vitale.  May she rest in peace.
