The distinctive marks which identify our community are: prayerful collaboration with and faithful support of the Catholic Church, our Holy Father and our local Church; simple and sisterly community sharing; careful observance of papal enclosure as an indispensable aid for a life of contemplative prayer; perpetual exposition and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament; traditional practices of fast and total abstinence; full-length habit and bare feet; and the Liturgy of the Hours with Matins at midnight.
