Anglican Benedictine Nuns

Our Daily Life

Prayer and Service

Worship is at the heart of the Benedictine life. Each day in the seven monastic offices and in the Eucharist we receive God's gift of himself in word and sacrament.

In our corporate worship we pray with the whole church, holding up the needs, joys, and sorrows of the world to the love and mercy of God.

In solitude and silence, we experience contemplative prayer as a gift of the Spirit who prays within us "according to the mind of God".

Our simple lifestyle both expresses and forms our reverence for God's creation and our stewardship of it.

The life of our community is enriched by the interests and talents of each sister, which may find expression in writing, music, poetry, art or craft. Often we are surprised at the creative gifts and skills we discover in ourselves.
