A Day

A bell rings in early morning dark calling monks from their sleep. Vigils is the first office, and is primarily a poetry of spoken text in call and response form. The monks read and chant long passages from Psalms, a most accessible and uplifting section of the Bible. Seven times each day, monks will gather in the chapel to pray, chant and read, expressing their communion with each other in contemplation of the ONE who is at the very center of their lives, the ALMIGHTY.
