Weather and time have taken a toll on Monte Cassino Shrine.
Recently, a generous benefactor stepped forward to lead the effort
to stabilize the old sandstone structure, beautify the grounds, and
make other needed repairs and improvements.
The project will be conducted in several phases. Work to
reinforce and stabilize the building and tuck point the exterior
was completed in 2016.
Because the chapel is not air conditioned or ventilated, a
heating, ventilation and air conditioning system is planned. This
will improve the comfort of visitors and keep the painted walls,
woodwork and artwork from deteriorating. Better lighting also will
Also planned for 2017 is new landscaping, including a prayer
garden and a sandstone front patio with benches, which will be
especially convenient for the rosary pilgrimages.
