A Day

Before the morning work period begins, the monks chant a short office called Terce. Even in tasks of manual labour, when simple enough, can provide a meditative opportunity where each moment, each action is offered as a gesture of prayer. In this way, prayer occurs throughout the day. After each office the Monks leave in procession in rank from when they entered the monastery. First Abbot, then Prior followed by the Sub-Prior and the rest of the community in order of seniority.
