The Cloister Chapel - Eucharistic Adoration
Cloistered Contemplative Nuns - Our Life
Our voluntary withdrawal from the world frees us from worldly affairs so that we may lead a more intense life of prayer in silence and solitude within our monastery. Daily we pray and offer sacrifices for the sanctification of our own souls, for the sanctification of all priests and their labors, and for vocations to the Priesthood and religious life. We pray daily for the needs of Holy Mother Church, the intentions of our families, friends, and benefactors; for the conversion of sinners, the salvation of souls, and for the intercessory prayer requests which we receive daily.
Our Horarium - What Cloistered Nuns Do All Day
Our days are filled with prayer, Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament, work, and household chores. Because work is an extension of prayer, we labor in a peaceful and prayerful atmosphere within our monastery each day to help support ourselves through a small printing apostolate which includes a monthly novena newsletter, Mass cards, Prayer Remembrance cards; and our small mail-order apostolate of religious gifts, cards, devotional badges, the Agnus Dei sacramental, and various religious books, pamphlets, and holy cards. We invite you to visit our Sacramentals Catalog page (please use the link at left) to see items currently available!

In imitation of Our Lady at Nazareth, each Sister shares in typical household duties and the upkeep of the monastery, such as: cooking, washing dishes, house cleaning, laundry & ironing, yard work, painting, gardening, or whatever task may be asked of her in holy obedience.
The Holy Vows
In addition to the Vows of Poverty, Chastity, and Obedience, we take a fourth vow - the Vow of Enclosure (cloister) - which is observed for the sake of our contemplative life. Although not cloistered in the strictest sense, our life is spent here in the monastery and we rarely leave the property except when it is of absolute necessity or emergency. As cloistered contemplatives, we do not travel or go on vacations; however, we are permitted to receive family and close friends in our parlor at certain times of the year and on special occasions.
