Daily Life

We are a contemplative community in whose daily life the Monastic rhythm revolves around the Eucharist and the Liturgy of the Hours. The zither, a gentle stringed instrument, accompanies and supports our singing. Communal and personal prayer give resonance to our day and as we move from prayer to work to leisure and recreation.

 

We are blessed with beautiful grounds which produce vegetables, hard and soft fruits – and wood for winter fires! We engage in some desk-top publishing, craft work, card production and icon mounting.

 

“The Consecrated life proclaims to the world the peace which comes from the Father, the dedication witnessed by the Son, and the joy which is the fruit of the Holy Spirit.”
John Paul II
