Our Prayer

“Saint Benedict placed high value on praying in Community, intending common prayer to be a sustaining force for his followers in their personal lives of prayer and work. Benedict strongly emphasized the value of the Liturgy of the Hours (Work of God) when he declared that nothing is to be preferred to it. The Liturgy of the Hours is the recurring sign of the Community’s unity with Christ and within itself.”
(from Of Time Made Holy)

We gather three times daily for the Liturgy of the Hours, and the celebration of the Eucharist.

Benedictine prayer is rooted in the Psalms and other books of Scripture. We are women of the Book. Scripture permeates our day in the Liturgy of the Hours and our personal or communal sacred reading (Lectio Divina).

Our life is characterized by keeping a constant consciousness of the presence of God, even in the ordinary and mundane.
