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

“Jesus reminds us that we are called to care for each other. Humility Homes and Services is one way the CHM sisters responded to that call in relation to the most vulnerable among us,” Sister Rickl said. “Lack of affordable housing is a great injustice in our Quad-City community. We are grateful that so many people have come forward to be partners in our dream of securing a home for every person. Their support allowed a leap from the first year’s four families housed to last year’s more than 1,100 persons served by HHSI. With continuing partnership from generous donors and these grants, the dream goes forward.”

May we face whatever comes with compassion and grace remembering that what connects us is stronger than what divides us. May our hearts be strong and all of us remember that no matter what WE will determine how we will move through this world, together.
