Each day, every Nun has a scheduled hour of Eucharistic Adoration.  Once a week, she has an hour of Night Adoration.  In anticipation of when our community has enough members to resume Perpetual Adoration, we have continual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament from after Mass on First Friday and extending through Vespers on First Saturday.  During other days, Exposition and Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament extends from after Mass until after Vespers, with the exception of 12 p.m. – 2 p.m.

Free time affords the Nuns further opportunity for additional time for Eucharistic Adoration, prayer, reading, exercise, rest, hobbies, etc.

Our Abbess assigns work and cleaning charges. Monastic work includes cleaning, cooking, sacristy work, data entry, monastery upkeep, etc.  Looking upon the monastery as a ‘city enclosed’, each Nun is assigned various tasks in order to keep this ‘city’ working in an effective and orderly manner.

Working silence is observed throughout the day until our evening meal.  Evening recreation activities include educational dvds, games, crafts, communal time, and movies.

The consistency of the daily schedule (horarium) provides us with a healthy balance between prayer, work, rest, learning, and recreation.
