Begging For Stones In Monroe County, Ohio


Jerusalem, Ohio Catholics are being asked to collect all their cut sandstones they are no longer using and drop them off at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Cemetery on Ozark-Eddy Bridge Road so that we can duplicate this Portiuncula Chapel located at the Franciscan University of Steubenville (see photo above).

Francis set to begging for stones with which to restore the church of San Damiano. He called to the passers-by: "Whoever gives me one stone will have one reward; two stones, two rewards; three stones, a treble reward!"

Please note : We are begging all of our Catholic brothers and sisters in Monroe County, Ohio to round up all their cut sandstones and dump them on the property just South of the Immaculate Conception Cemetery on Ozark-Eddy Bridge Road (in the direction of the large white house towards Woodsfield). These stones will be used to erect the Portiuncula Chapel.

Thank you and may God bless each and every one of you for your kindness and generosity.
