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
Mother and daughter no longer have to “couch surf,” or look for a place to rest their heads each night. With the support of Humility of Mary Housing, Inc. (HMHI) and their dedication to bettering their lives, they live in their own apartment and savor the stability.

A Nun's Pocket, CHM Blog - Today, over six years since that first journey, I now will be taking my final ride down that lane to begin a new journey. Among my belongings will be a deeper awareness of God’s love and presence in each of our lives. I take a heart grateful for the opportunities to build friendships, to shape programs, to enhance the property and care for its beauty.

At this Christmas when Christ comes, will He find a warm heart? Mark the season of Advent by loving and serving the others with God's own love and concern.
