centered on the chapel

Jul 19, 2013

The programme of study here at the Liturgical Institute is centered not on the classroom and the library, but on the liturgical life of the chapel. Three times each day our community gathers to pray together, Morning Prayer in the morning, Mass in the afternoon, and Evening prayer early each evening.  It is because of the hours in the chapel, that the life of the classroom and library is a living experience deepening relationship with Jesus.

Music is a key part of our method of prayer. At Mass yesterday, a dozen of our number led us in thanksgiving prayer after communion. I thought you might appreciate savouring what they were able to do after a brief rehearsal under the direction of fellow student Adam Bartlett.
