With Photographs by Valerie O'Sullivan. Through a series of images and words we get a rare insight into the daily life of the Sisters of St Mary’s Abbey in Glencairn, County Waterford. It is the only Cistercian monastery for women in Ireland. Nestled in the rich heartland of Waterford, they live out their lives through work and prayer, following the Rule of St Benedict. There is a mysticism and rhythm to their daily life, which is intertwined with the seasons of nature and liturgies of the year. Their lives are a true, living, monastic journey fulfilling the motto of St Benedict ora et labora. (prayer and work)
