The monks call their building campaign “Deep Roots.” It is an invitation to the whole world to help the monks build an earthquake-resistant monastery and to provide the town with a flourishing monastic community for centuries to come.

With commitments made by the EU and the Italian state to restore the historic buildings in town for the needs of the diocese, the monks will concentrate their efforts on their 16th century church and rural property outside the walls of town.

There, a new magnificent church and monastery will rise up to complement the old one, encompassing all that the monks hold dear: the restoration of man through the worship of God, so that men might become monks, that monks might become saints, and Norcia, Europe and the world might be brought closer to God.
