Join Us For Prayer

Guests are welcome to join us in our monastery chapel for the Liturgy of the Hours and daily Eucharist.

Our chapel is open during daytime hours for private prayer, except during liturgies and special events.


If you wish to attend Lauds and Vespers and are not a retreat guest, please note the following:

  • We ask that you arrive about 10 minutes early so that a Sister may help you find a place and assist you in setting up your books. 
  • Because access to the chapel is through Ottilia Hall, please call to let us know you are coming so that the appropriate exterior door may be ready to receive you. (256-734-4622)


If you are a retreat guest and wish to attend Lauds or Vespers, a Retreat Center staff person will be available to assist you.
