A major fire is testing the faith of a Catholic monastery near Eureka Springs. Flames destroyed the chapel and dining hall of Little Portion Hermitage just after midnight Tuesday.
Firefighters from four departments were able to keep the intense fire from spreading to the living quarters of its members. They lost their archives, library, and storeroom. Little Portion’s founder is recording artist John Michael Talbot, who says some at the monastery suffered from minor smoke inhalation.
If you’d like to make a donation for recovery and rebuilding, you can do so at Little Portion’s Web site.
