"In 2008, the religious community of cloistered Dominican nuns arrived at their long-awaited home: St. Dominic’s Monastery in Linden. From atop their Blue Mountain property, the women could see the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Shenandoah Valley and the greenery of the 198 acres that surrounded them. They had a beautiful spot to spend their lives in prayer and contemplation, but the monastery wasn’t complete. More than a decade later, they're hoping to finish their permanent home."
