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 Humility Sisters “will continue to enlighten our work with their call for us to be a community, ‘working within the human family and caring for earth itself,’” wrote Sr. Rickl and Harvey. “Based on that calling, our Housing First philosophy is grounded in the ‘radical acceptance’ of the inherent worth of every person. Our vision for community will be fulfilled when every person in the Quad Cities has a place to call home.”

A Nun's Pocket, CHM Blog - Sister Cathy Talarico shares her experience of teaching art at the Iowa Correctional Institution for Women. "Art has the ability to bring a wholeness and holiness to the creator."

Put things in order, listen to my appeal, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.
