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 world today may seem filled with uncertainty and division, grief and loss, but Advent offers Christians and all humankind a sign of hope and joy, said Sister Jeanie Hagedorn, CHM. Advent, the Latin word for coming, is “a much-needed reminder to our world that light follows darkness, love overcomes hate, and life lives within each of us. … Like Mary, we are called to bring it to birth in our time.”

A Nun's Pocket, CHM Blog - Habit or no, their spiritual pockets only grow deeper. They were and always will be the epitome of the well known acronym WWJD (What Would Jesus Do?)

That is why we don't lose heart. And though this physical self of ours may be falling to decay, the inner self is renewed day by day. These light and momentary troubles train us to carry the weight of an eternal glory which will make these troubles insignificant by comparison.

2 Corinthians 4:16-17
