We welcome your prayer requests.

As Benedictines, prayer is our first duty and delight. According to St. Benedict, prayer is the strongest means for resolving problems and for finding peace in the midst of life's challenges. If you have any worries or know people who you would like to place in God’s care, we will support your prayers with ours. Just submit your prayer request, and we will pray for your intention.

Please join us in praying for others.

Five times a day, we gather in our Chapel in order to praise God for his creation. We give him thanks, but also lament and present to God our needs and the needs of the world.

We start in the morning with the Office of Readings and Lauds. After that we have time for "lectio divina", that is prayerful reading of the Holy Scriptures. At noon, we pray Sext and in the evening Vespers. Our day closes with Compline. For the Liturgy of the Hours we use prayers from the Holy Scripture that have been used over and over more than 2,500 years: the Psalms. When we sing them we are united with the whole praying Church.

The celebration of the Liturgy of the Hours has its culmination in the daily Holy Eucharist. Encountering Jesus, listening to his word and receiving his body, give us the nourishment we need on our journey. The prayer of the Liturgy of the Hours and the Eucharist find their extension in all we do throughout the day — in unceasing prayer. 

Guests and visitors are welcome to join us for any of the prayer times and in the celebration of the Eucharist!

Listen readily to holy reading, and devote yourself often to prayer.
