In February 2020, Oasis Trails purchased an abandoned monastery in Barbarin, just 4 km from the albergue. The vision is to have a place where people live in community, sharing their lives with each other. There will be spiritual rhythms of worship, prayer, and studying the Word, but also a place where people can serve each other by using their gifts. It will be a place where people are invited to join in whether it be for a week, a month, a year. We want to welcome everyone wherever they are at on their journey of faith, whether they are still looking for Jesus or have been walking with Him their entire life.
The building has been purchased, and some work is being done to it to prepare it for renovation, but we are still in need of funds to begin the renovations.
