Mission
Our Benedictine way of life finds its expression in giving ourselves to God through our vows. Daily it is expressed in the time we give to the praise of God in The Liturgy of the Hours, in daily Mass, lectio divina, in personal prayer and reading. Our ministry is our monastic life: the search for God lived here within St. Emma’s. We are a spiritual center where people come rather than our taking Christ to the world. We strive to seek Christ in the superior, the other nuns, the guests, the sick. The eyes of faith see the tools of the monastery as the sacred vessels of the altar. Whatever we are doing, it is the means at that moment by which we offer our lives to God.
