GLOSSARY....................

Tea
:  our monastic breakfast, consisting of tea and bread; those who feel the need of it may take a spread on their bread.
 
Collation: our light weekday evening meal, usually consisting of a drink of decaf coffee or milk, bread, cheese, egg or fish, and fruit. Sunday evening meals are light suppers.

Work time: during the hours assigned to work each Sister attends to her assigned duty. She also spends at least one half hour in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament.

PLEASE NOTE................
The Sunday schedule is slightly different, with Benediction at 3:00 P.M., preceded by Rosary with those attending in the chapel. Time given to work on weekdays is free for private prayer or other activities.
