SAVING PLACE, SAVING GRACE

A documentary film, Saving Place, Saving Grace, tells the story of the monks' of Holy Cross Abbey and their efforts to sustain their community and maintain their “sacred ground.” that borders three miles of the Shenandoah River. It portrays the  land stewardship, prayer practice, and work ethic of the Cistercian monks who are the caretakers of  the 1,200 acre monastery property.

The film is still in production and is due to air on PBS this fall. Additional funding is needed to complete the production and post production work on the film. Picture Farmer Films, a film production company based in Winchester, is hosting a series of art events to help fund completion of the documentary.

On June 4 and 5, eminent regional artists gathered at the Holy Cross Abbey and painted scenes from various vantage points on the property.

An exhibit of the works created during that outdoor painting weekend will take place, beginning with an opening reception at the Barns of Rose Hill on Saturday, June 18 from 5:00 pm until 7:00 pm. All are invited to view the exhibit, meet artists, purchase paintings and talk with the film producers.




From June 19 until July 2, the exhibit will be available to the public during regular open hours at the Barns of Rose Hill.

Certain pieces of art will be on preview for the live auction July 2, and patrons may enter silent bids on those pieces through the duration of the exhibit. An end-of-exhibit party on the evening of July 2 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm will feature film clips and a live auction of paintings

Pope Francis: "God opens His heart to those who pray with humility"



Pope Francis in his catechesis for the General Audience on June 1, said that humble prayer, like that of the publican who said only “O God, have mercy on me, a sinner,” obtains the mercy of God.
