Fr. Michael Della Penna with the children

Welcome o The Valley Of The Angels

Fr. Michael Della Penna with childrenTHE FRIARY built in the early 1990's, is a modern home for the friars. The welcoming and peaceful environment speaks of God's presence. A rectangular designed layout complete with a kitchen, laundry, recreation, dinning room, chapel, offices and individual bed rooms.


A unique interior design feature, the friary's center is an open concept natural setting of plants and grass, allowing for the pristine environment to enter. To accommodate this, above is a skylight approximately 20 feet by 10 feet of clear glass allowing the sun's rays to sustain the plant life. One never feels completely enclosed, but always a part of God's creation in nature.


The gallery below takes you from the friary entrance into the friary for a tour of selected areas, including the friary center. To view each image larger, please click on the respective thumbnails.
