RequirementsThe vocation to be a Benedictine Sister of Perpetual Adoration is a call to prefer nothing to the love of Christ. It is to seek God in the rhythm of the Liturgy of the Hours, Eucharist, lectio divina, adoration, work within the enclosure of the monastery, meals and recreation. It is to share the journey to God with sisters who will challenge and encourage you along the way. It is to be united with the world through prayer more deeply than you could have ever imagined.
