Our Life

Ours is a simple life. A life which is hidden with God, and lived for God. You will see in these pages a glimpse of our Sisters who come from various countries and varied backgrounds. We live together in community, take our meals together, pray the Liturgy of the Hours together, assist at Holy Mass together and enjoy recreation with one another. Alone, each Sister takes her turn before the Lord in adoration, joining with him in intercession for the missions of the world. Each Sister also keeps a time for personal prayer each day during which time she reads and reflects on Sacred Scripture, does spiritual reading, prays the rosary and way of the Cross. Our schedule allows for a free hour once a day. The Sisters spend this time as they wish, resting, reading, writing, pursuing a hobby, taking a walk in the garden or having a conversation with other Sisters.

The Call

By Sister Mary A

Come to a quiet, to a place apart
God calls you
Come Close, deeper still
In intimacy, in silence, in solitude
Receive the gift of love offered you,
The fresh wine of the Spirit poured in abundance-
blessing, beauty, sweetness, grace
Walk the earth in freedom
With meaning, purpose and fulfillment,
Touch the heavens
Praising, praying, playing, working, sharing, living, loving
In wonder, in simplicity, in truth, in purity, in fecundity,
peaceful serenity, deep joy
Steeped in contemplation One with God
