Visitation Nuns of Philadelphia

Roll-Off Dumpster Direct delivered a 30-yd dumpster to the Visitation Nuns of Philadelphia. Located at 58th and City Line Avenue, the community is one of about 160 monasteries of the worldwide Order of the Visitation of Holy Mary. This Order was founded all the way back in 1610.

So, what exactly is the day in the life of a nun like? After waking at 5:30 a.m., the nuns engage in choir five times a day, spend an hour and a half in mental prayer, and engage in spiritual reading for 30 minutes a day. The nuns are encouraged to observe silence throughout much of the day except during recreation time after dinner. In addition, the nuns use extra time to work on monastery maintenance projects, and Roll-Off provides dumpsters to help with these projects.
