Prayer Schedule

ChapelWe place before our all-merciful God the needs of all people, of all places, of all times. As we chant the Liturgy of the Hours, celebrate Eucharist, carry out our daily labors and spend time in personal prayer and adoration, we are mindful of the needs of all who ask our prayer. As you seek God's help, we are united with you in prayer and concern, trusting that God will answer. People of all faiths are invited to pray in our chapel and join us for our liturgies.
 Our chapel opens ½ hour before our first morning service and closes after the last service of the day. The following times are ordinarily observed but sometimes may be changed on short notice because of community needs. Please phone if in doubt: (520) 325-6401.
