Want to know what JOY is? Explore its meaning as "Jesus, Only You!" Find out what its like to give your life to Jesus for His priests! Young women, ages 19-39, who feel drawn to a contemplative life centered on Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration for the sanctification of priests and the needs of the world may write or email to inquire about arranging a visit to our monastery. While visiting you will experience our Community life, daily Mass, work, daily Eucharistic Holy Hours and Nocturnal Adoration as well. You will share in our Marian focused life as we give our "Fiats" to the Lord daily in living out His Will in joy. Praying and working and meeting the nuns is part of the program, but most of all, meeting Jesus in the Eucharist and living with Him day and night.  If you cannot visit us in person, explore our website.
