Sustaining a Mission of Prayer & Sacrifice for the Needs of the World

Currently it is home to nearly 30 nuns who only leave the monastery occasionally. Their lives are dedicated to prayer in the chapel seven times a day, singing the Divine Office daily, and 24-hour perpetual adoration of the Eucharist.As Sr. Mary Peter Fox, OP, Prioress of the Monastery of the Blessed Sacrament, shared about the life of the sisters, her smile radiated joy. She describes her vocation as living the community’s mission of “prayer and sacrifice for the needs of the world and the Church”.
