After seven years of waiting, the construction of the new Nursing Home will begin in the grounds of thesisters in Mauer. In 2009, the Nursing Home which was run by our sisters, was demolished. Since then,because of legal negotiations by the Haus der Barmherzigkeit: the company which now owns the land,and the government, the sisters have been waiting for construction of this new Home to begin.
On the Feast of the Founders, 17 February 2016, there was an open evening in the Convent for the people of Mauer to come and see the plans and to meet with all those involved in the Home and the construction.
It is likely that the sisters will begin to see the construction workers in the garden in March and they hope that the new building will be complete in 2 years. Let us pray that this will be completed without further delays.
