|Seven times a day we
come together to recite the Divine Office.
The prayer of the Church, hymns, psalms, readings from the Scripture.
Prayers for the needs of all the world.
|Our monastery chapel is separated by a grille from the main chapel so that we can see the sanctuary and share the Holy Mass with the general public|
Carmelite Monasteries have been called "Powerhouses of
Prayer." The essence of Carmel is union with God by means of
prayer and penance. This union becomes a Channel of Grace
God reaches out to other souls.
This life of prayer and union with God is a hidden life of faith. It is a life of deep simplicity
The Holy Rosary, the Litany of Our Lady and the Angelus Domini will be prayed in community every day.
|The Prioress should provide the Sisters with good books, for such reading is not less necessary for the nourishment of the soul than food is for the body. Constitutions 1990|
|At two o'clock in the afternoon None is recited, after which they shall have spiritual reading. Constitutions 1990|
To be a channel of grace for souls a Carmelite must fix her gaze on GOD alone.
