Community Prayer

Before gathering for Morning Prayer at 7:30 am, many of us have already spent time in personal prayer, had a "pick up" breakfast, and perhaps done some form of exercise. Our last community gathering of the day is Night Prayer at 7:30 pm, but many of us also use the time after Night Prayer for more personal prayer. We consider the quiet hours of the morning and evening as special times of grace.
