A Day in the Life

After these Rules, which were formulated and drawn up from the virtues of which Our Lord Jesus Christ gave us a special example on the Cross, there now follow some regulations in order to have the entire management of the House organised in such a way that everything is directed to facilitate the practice of the above named virtues. (Unabridged Rule, p.53)

The Unabridged Rule included a timetable of the day of the Daughter of Charity. This is adapted to the apostolate of each house, but never in such a way as to loose the intention, to lead each Sister a balance of prayer and apostolate. The timetable for the Our Lady of Lourdes Communty is as Follows:

06:00    Rising

06:30    Lauds, followed by meditation

08:00    Celebration of the Holy Eucharist

08:40    Breakfast

09:00    Clean-up

09:15    Preparation for apostolates, Chores
