Horarium


 

' It was the God one encountered in the quiet moments of prayer who demanded that we demonstrate our love for this God by our acts of love for neighbor....'

—Dr Desmond Tutu
Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town
Words for Silence

 

The horarium, or daily schedule, is a basic monastic tool directing us to seek God in work as well as prayer, in silence and solitude as well as community.

We welcome guests and visitors at all public offices and Eucharist. Unless noted, all services are in the chapel. Times for special liturgies and feasts may differ slightly from regular times.
