It does not apply to children under 5.

Building Project

The next phase of the Sacred Space - Social Place Project has started - actual construction.


The estimate time for completion is 18-24 months. If you have ever been involved in any type of a construction project, the best laid plans seem to not go as planned, so let's figure on 24 months.

It is our intent to keep you updated on the progress through the bulletin and the website.
