I am with you always

Public Masses resumed on May 20th–Deo Gratias!

7:30am Sunday and Saturday
6:55am Monday—Friday

Masses at the monastery are celebrated in
the Extraordinary Form,
and Holy Communion in the hand
is not allowed in this traditional form of the Mass.

Those who would prefer not to receive Our Lord
on the tongue are encouraged to make
a Spiritual Communion.

 God bless you all!


Until May 20th, our chapel will remain open for private prayer
at the following times:

The chapel will be unlocked
after our chaplain’s private Mass,
 approximately at 9:15am on Sundays,
9:00am on Saturdays, and 8:00am on weekdays (see exceptions below),

and will close each evening at 7:00pm.

We will continue to have devotional services:
First Friday: Silent Holy Hour for vocations at  5:00pm
Each Sunday at 7:00 p.m: May Devotions (without the Children’s Procession)
May 21, Ascension Thursday: Mass at 7:30am,  Rosary and Benediction at 5:00pm
May 25, Memorial Day: Mass at 7:30am

Please observe social distancing while in the chapel.

Please be assured that the nuns will take each of you,
our dear friends,
in our hearts as we attend the sacred services.
We take our responsibility
to pray for all of you very seriously,
during this unprecedented time
of sacramental deprivation.

An optimal moment to make a Spiritual Communion is at the time Mass is celebrated each day, but this is a practice that can be done many times a day with great spiritual fruitfulness. Here is one way to make a spiritual communion:

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love you above all things and I desire to receive you in my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally,
Come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace you as if you were already there
And unite myself wholly to you.
Never permit me to be separated from you.

Let us pray together for those who are affected by the pandemic, for those in the medical community treating patients and for wisdom in our spiritual leaders and in the scientific community.

God brings good out of every evil!

In God’s will is our peace.
