Prayer and the worship of God are the lifeblood and heart of our Community and the source of inspiration for all that we undertake.  Through our prayer, worship, and creative talents we encourage others to seek God.

We believe that each person is given an invitation to follow Christ.   The Sisters of our monastic community respond to that invitation by an intentional living out of the vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience within the structure of a modified Augustinian Rule.  

Through the vow of poverty, we profess our trusting dependence upon God by embracing voluntary simplicity and responsible stewardship of creation.  

Through chastity, we profess the sanctity of all creation as the primary revelation of God.  

Through obedience, we profess our desire to be dependent on God’s direction and to live and minister in ways that respect all creation, both now and for generations to come.

Our Rule of Life provides a deep structure to our thoughts and actions, and allows us to fully engage in our quest for union with God.
