Welcome

The Congregation of the Humility of Mary, is a contemporary religious community of women based in Davenport, Iowa. Like the woman in the gospel who lights a lamp to search for lost treasure, we seek the will of the Spirit in the signs of the times. Motivated by compassion and justice, we give ourselves wholeheartedly wherever the needs are greatest. We invite you to explore these pages and learn more about our community: how we live, what we believe, our spirit and gifts - and what it means to search and serve in the 21st century. -The Sisters of Humility

What's New

As we move forward into the mystery of the future, we call to mind these words of Isaiah 43:19: ‘Behold, I am doing something new! Do you not perceive it?’ These certainly are interesting times with interesting challenges.”

The Lord will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge for times of trouble.

Psalm 9:9
