The following 4 strands: prayer, reading/study, work and community are woven together to form a typical Benedictine day marked by balance and respect for the rhythms of human life and the environment, a day focused on God and mutual service in love.

All these activities take place within the context of trying to build Christian community, a community bound by common values, called together to offer a convincing witness to the world that it is possible to respond to the Gospel challenge to live in peace and harmony.
