Personal Prayer

Every month each sister has what we call a “hermit day” when she is free from all commitments, even, apart from Mass, the obligation to pray with the community. The day is hers to use as she feels inspired – for prayer, reading or other prayerful activities according to her own timetable and in her favourite places – in one of the chapels, her cell (our name for our bedrooms), or anywhere else in the house or garden.

Every day, of course, we try to do everything in a spirit of prayerfulness and when we have any spare time we can use it for a moment of more intense prayer wherever and whenever we choose.
