Life in the Monastery centers on prayer and the chant of the Divine Office, which is sung five times a day on choir stalls that are over 500 years old! The Sisters earn their own living by providing Altar Breads to many parishes of the Archdiocese. Through the years, the Sisters have had gardens, mowed the land, and even had chickens, ducks, rabbits, goats, and even a lamb! Work can take many forms, as needed: music (organ, zither, guitar (we have 3) there are even recorders and a harmonica! There is also art work to do, such as painting, sculpting, ceramics (the Sisters made a large Sacred Heart mosaic for their Chapter Room-every Sister contributing), as well as regularly need work in cooking, making our Habits, sacristy work, cleaning, planning liturgies, etc.
