"Work not for the bread which perishes but for that which endures to eternal life."
-John 6

The Sisters dedicate part of their day to manual work, including gardening, bookbinding, carpentry, leather craft, and beekeeping. The Sisters also work to spread the philosophical and theological teachings of their founder.

Their craft work helps to supply for their needs as much as possible, yet due to the demands of their life of prayer, they are unable to fully meet their material needs. For this reason they gratefully accept donations from benefactors.
