Got nuns? Anchorage needs some!

This was irresistable. H/T to Joseph K at Defend us in Battle blog, who picked up the text off the Facebook page of a priest in Alaska.

Does anybody know any monastic community that might be interested in coming to Anchorage? Our very dear Sisters of the Perpetual Adoration are all in their late 80s and desperately want to be replaced, but their own congregation down in Mexico doesn't have vocations any more. All up here agree it's absolutely crucial for our archdiocese to maintain this place of prayer, the only contemplative community in Alaska, yet no one has any ideas where to find actual nuns... The building with a beautiful public chapel surrounded by a splendid cloistered garden is waiting. Please pray that we may find a way to keep it alive...

Joe, who lives in Alaska, is originally from Michigan. He follows up his post with this:

If you know of an order that could fill this void... please contact me and I will get you in touch with the appropriate people, or just contact the Archdiocese of Anchorage.

If nothing else, PRAY.
