We are preparing to build the Portiuncula Chapel which is a smaller scale model of the original Portiuncula Chapel in Assisi, Italy that St. Francis of Assisi rebuilt sometime around1211 A.D. to replace the original Immaculate Conception Church built by my Great-Great Grandfather, along with the Catholic Community of Monroe County, Ohio in 1874 that was torn down in the 1970's.
We have gathered up several cut sand stones but are still in need of more of these stones. If you have some cut sandstones around your property we are begging everyone to drop them off into the tree line next to the Immaculate conception Cemetery in Ozark, Ohio (Ozark-Eddy Bridge Road) toward the village of Woodsfield.
Thank you and God bless each and every one of you!
Pace E' Bene! (Peace and All Good!)
