Join Us For Prayer

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

For Lauds and Vespers, 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.  Note: 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)

Our chapel is open during the day for private prayer, except during liturgies and special events.
