Slide #1

"Following the example of our order's saints we strive to live a contemplative lifestyle in which prayer, work, and life in sisterly community are merged." (Guilding Principles)

Laudes

We begin our day with meditation and Laudes, the morning praise and worship of God.

Eucharistic Celebration

At the Eucharistic Celebration - the highpoint of the day -
we allow and experience the transforming power of God.

Reception Desk

At the cloister reception desk we are there for people.

Practical

Supporting each other in many activities . . .

Midday Prayers

At midday we interrupt our work and gather in the chapel to pause for the “Examen of Conscience” about how the day has gone up until now.

Eating Together

Eating together unites us, whether in silence or in conversation.

Activities

There for people in times of sickness and sorrow.

Dedication

Providing for the physical well-being often happens in the background.

Vespers

The workday closes with Vespers, the liturgical prayer of thanksgiving. In Compline, the night prayer of the Church, we entrust ourselves to the protection of God for the night.

Prayer

During the day each sister is given one and a half hours for personal prayer.

Recreation

Daily recreation time, alternating between personal free time and community recreation, promotes relaxation and nurtures togetherness within the community.

Vacation

We mostly spend our vacations and retreats at the Kneipp Cure houses owned by our order: Aspach, Bad Kreuzen, Bad Mühllacken and at the Retreat House in Grünau.
