 Message From Sister Anne Wambach 

During this pandemic while we shelter in place, our offerings are restricted to online opportunities. As Sister Anne Wambach, prioress,   writes in her latest update, "There will be no public services at the monastery as we strive to support the public requests for minimizing both group and personal interactions. This means that the Monastery will, in essence, continue to be closed to guests and visitors indefinitely."
 PRAY WITH US: Always, online

We welcome you to pray a daily psalm, Benedictus, or Magnificat with us  here.  

You can reflect on each day's reading of the Rule of Benedict here. 

And please join us in praying for others, or add your own prayer intention here.

Two free online eCourses 
at Monasteries of the Heart: 
Songs of Lament & Hope 
Seeking God in Community

These two eCourses are in process but it's not too late to join. Songs of Lament and Hope offers an opportunity to explore a few ancient psalms together and thus inspired, grounded in the challenges and laments of our present global reality, to write and share your own psalms, your own laments, your own journey to hope. Seeking God in Community explores the theme of community in a technological world suffering from a pandemic.
