According to our Rule the community meets seven times a day for communal prayer of the Divine Office beginning with Vigils at 4 AM and ending with Compline (Night Prayer). Some of these prayers are done within the cloister in private.

The following prayer services are in the monastery church and open to the public.
Our gates open at 4 AM and close at 8 PM after the Night Prayer.
