Two to three new buildings will accommodate finer facilities for overnight guests.
The Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross is celebrated every year on Sept. 14. The feast commemorates three historical events:
• the finding of the True Cross by Saint Helena, the mother of the emperor Constantine;
• the dedication of churches built by Constantine on the site of the Holy Sepulchre and Mount Calvary; and
• the restoration of the True Cross to Jerusalem by the emperor Heraclius II.
But in a deeper sense, the feast also celebrates the Holy Cross as the instrument of our salvation.

According to Tommy Robichaux, project chairman, the initial phase of adding at least 92 beds is expected to be completed in late Summer of 2015.
