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
The Leadership Conference of Women Religious strongly denounces the cruel decision by the Trump administration to terminate Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for more than 200,000 Salvadorans. El Salvador is the fourth country whose citizens have been stripped of their right to protection by President Trump’s administration. Rescinding TPS from human beings under continuing threat of violence of all types is inconsistent with the values and traditions of this nation and with our belief in the dignity of all persons.

A Nun's Pocket, CHM Blog - Anyone in Des Moines who is homeless or on the brink of homelessness can attend the event. And many have so far. The line to the last "Stand Down" was so long it wrapped around itself. Many of these people have nothing. The hard work is worth it just to see their joyful reactions. We have been able to help a lot of people.

The Lord bless you and keep you! The Lord let his face shine upon you, and be gracious to you! The Lord look upon you kindly and give you peace!

Numbers 6:24-26
