MONASTIC SCHEDULE

Our monastic offices follow the order established by Saint Benedict in his Rule, sung in traditional English from the Monastic Diurnal and the Monastic Diurnal Noted - both publications of Lancelot Andrewes Press, publishers of traditional liturgical materials. Service times -- The daily schedule differs according to the liturgical rank of the day.

While the monks observe the full round of Hours and Liturgy each day, only certain services are open to the public.
