OUR DAILY SCHEDULE

Prayer as a way of life   For our Holy Mother and model St Teresa of Avila, prayer is a way of life, and our daily schedule is enlivened by this theme. Our simple daily schedule works for a day of communal and personal prayer that allows time for work, as assigned to each of the nuns, as well as retreat and rest within the personal cell of each nun. Because ours in an ageing community, some adjustments were made to allow for a more suitable life-style.
