Vespers: 5.30 pm
Office has a particular intention:
give thanks for our creation, preservation, vocation; the
blessing of grace and for the hope of glory; for the unity of
the Church and the peace of the world; for all in danger or
Office - we pray in union with the Passion of our Lord; for
those who hate or ignore Christ; for those bound to him and to
us by ties of love; for those now sharing his suffering and
- we adore God, in union with all who worship Him, in time and
- we pray for all the departed; for those who are working at
night; for the starving, homeless and tempted and, for us all,
repentance and confidence in God.
At 3 pm the chapel bell is rung to mark the
hour of None and a prayer is said wherever the Sisters may be.
Fridays are kept as special days of prayer,
silence and fasting, with an intention for a current world need.
In addition to
their corporate worship, the Sisters have an hour's personal
prayer before Lauds and after Vespers
and their manual work in the
house and garden is an important and necessary part of monastic
life and prayer.
