"And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers."
trying to emulate the early church of the New Testament of whom it was said: "that they devoted themselves to prayer" . . . .(Acts 2:42)
We practice Christian monastic spirituality.
It is primarily an approach to God
in response to God's invitation
found in Sacred Scripture:
"Seek ye first the Kingdom of God" (Mt 6:33).
Monastic spirituality is seen as providing a better focus for Christian lives and encouraging attentive listening to God in the silence of one's heart, especially through the ancient monastic discipline called lectio divina, meaning a prayerful reading, meditating and praying with Sacred Scripture (the Bible). Other helpful means of focusing one's life include times of reading or chanting each day part of the book of Psalms, the prayerbook of the Christian as it is often called.
Please feel free to write us via email for prayer requests. Be assured that all prayer requests will be prayed for by name and need and a written acknowledgement will be sent via email.
