Work Life

sacristyThrough daily work, each nun finds a steady means to grow in charity by serving the needs of her sisters in imitation of Christ who “came to serve.”  At times both demanding and rewarding, our assigned tasks allow us to contribute to the life of the community while providing challenges that foster personal growth. Whether the work is done with other sisters or individually, the nun finds that: “By enduring the toil of work in union with Christ crucified for us, man in a way collaborates with the Son of God for the redemption of humanity. He shows himself a true disciple of Christ by carrying the cross in his turn every day[86] in the activity that he is called upon to perform” (John Paul II).

Prayer Life

prayer-life-olamAdoremus in Aeternum Sanctissimum Sacramentum

This acclamation Let us adore forever the Most Blessed Sacrament, frequently on the lips of the PCPA, turns her heart and mind to the source and summit of her life and vocation – Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. The Mass, offered daily at 7 a.m. is the heart of our monastic life, and perpetual adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is likewise, the lifeblood of the community. The whole of the nun’s life tends toward prayer – the encounter with God and the journey of spousal discipleship with Him. The silence of the cloister, the rhythm of the liturgy of the hours and the unceasing vigil of adoration, all foster and engender our ‘abiding in God (Jn 15).’ This life of prayer, offered with and in Christ, thus benefits the whole Church and the entire world as it finds its roots and fulfillment in the redemption of Christ.
