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

A Nun's Pocket, CHM Blog - When he demonstrated his skill at bringing in a 2-lb. perch, the sisters were thrilled. In fact, the gentleman said the experience with the sisters and his "fisherman's luck" was something he would remember all his life!

The Peace of Wild Things: When despair grows in me and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be, I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds. I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting for their light. For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
