The Jamberoo Abbey community is an enclosed community. This means that the community lives and works within the Abbey in a spirit of openness to all in prayer and hospitality leaving the enclosure only for medical appointments or important business.
Enclosure enables each sister:
- to live her vocation faithfully
- to pray
- to enter into a deeper silence
- to wait upon the Lord.
Enclosure is not an imposition but rather a gift from the Church. We see the enclosure as a sanctuary where we can freely seek God in prayer, worship, hospitality and work. In this way we become the Church at prayer.
