Frequently Asked Questions

Why do you get up so early? We get up while it is still dark in order to pray at night. Following the example of Christ, we pray during the hours of darkness for and with a world in pain and anguish - which often seems worse at night. We continue our vigilant prayer until daybreak which is a daily reminder of Christ's victory over sin and death through the triumph of the resurrection.
