Since all of our Sisters in the Order are called to evangelic and apostolic life, how do we as contemplative Basilians differ from them?

We differ because our contemplative life contains characteristics of enclosure and stability that help us to develop the interior life necessary for contemplation. This includes times of solitude and silence so that in our life of penance and the works done at the monastery we can contemplate Jesus, our model.

We offer our lives of prayer and commitment so that the world in seeing us sees him, in hearing us recognizes his voice, and in knowing us knows him.

United in this common mission
we journey forward, making known the Kingdom here on earth.

Contemplative Nuns
