Prayer Life

At the heart of our prayer life is the time we spend each day in quiet contemplation. We make our entire day a prayer of praise to God and recite the daily Office for the church, the world, and especially for our neighbors who are in need. At least once a week we attend the Eucharist. Each day we silently greet ourselves and people we meet with the words of Jesus: “Peace be with you.”

Our community has a special friendship with Mary. We address her as “Our Lady of Cana,” and pray a litany to her that is drawn from passages in the New Testament.

 We meditate on the rosary at least three times a week, and often use four unique rosaries that are named after our vows. These special rosaries use passages from Sacred Scripture to direct our hearts as we pray each bead.
