Dear Bahá’í Friends,

The National Spiritual Assembly is delighted to share the following news from a letter of today’s date, written on behalf of the Universal House of Justice, about the progress that has been made in the construction of the Shrine of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá.

“In the months since the decision to build the Shrine was announced, the land that will support the central structure and the surrounding gardens has been undergoing preparations, and work on the building’s foundations is advancing. Meanwhile, detailed architectural designs and landscaping plans are being developed to prepare for future stages of the project, and steps are being taken to ensure that construction materials of the necessary quality and quantity will be ready when needed.

“More information, including video footage and images of these developments, is being made available at the website of the Bahá’í World News Service (BWNS), As the project progresses further and particular milestones are reached, additional articles will be published there so that the Bahá’í world is kept informed. With this in mind, the friends are encouraged to turn periodically to the BWNS, which at this time publishes articles in English, French, Persian, and Spanish, for updates about the construction project.”

Please note that a subscription service is available, through which individuals can receive emails from BWNS when new articles are published.

With loving Bahá’í greetings,
Karen McKye, Secretary
