Prayer Service

According to the old monastic tradition of the Cistercians the theological facultyof the Rostock University has resumed hourly prayers in the former convent “Zum Heiligen Kreuz”. Of the originally seven to eight liturgical prayers, which determined the daily routine of the convent with their strict 3-hourly rhythm, today the “Matutin” (matins/ morning prayer) and the “Komplet” (compline/ evening prayer) are sung. Carried out by the theology students this form of Gregorian chant is open to everyone who is interested.

During the Bachfest the matins and compline will be sung daily in liturgical robes.
