That is when an architect was approached and the different steps began: studies, blueprints, meetings, cost evaluations, consultations, etc.
It was a major challenge, but since this Work comes from God and He can inspire attentive and generous hearts, it was decided to go ahead with the project.
Thus, in a spirit of abandonment and pure faith, the preparatory work for the construction began in July 1999. This was followed by the different stages involved in putting up the three buildings that make up Spiri-Maria.
After several months of hard labour, the day finally came for the inauguration. So, in a special ceremony held on May 13, 2000, the sacralization of the chapel took place and there began the perpetual adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in this blessed place. Since that day, adorers have been assiduously replacing one another before the monstrance in an incessant prayer to such a good and loving God.
It was in 1998, in a preparatory year to the great Jubilee of the Year 2000, dedicated to the Holy Spirit by Pope John Paul II, that the project of the construction of the Eucharistic and Marian Center Spiri-Maria began to germinate.
