“The Sisters are called to the Ministry of Prayer for the church and the world”. (Constitutions)
Each day the Sisters spend quality time in Contemplation holding in prayer the needs and intentions of the people of God.The Chapel and Prayer Garden are open daily to everyone from 10am – 6pm for quiet prayer.
The Poustinia is available for individual Solitude and extended time of Contemplation – anytime between 10am-6pm.
