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 - Sr. Mary Penelope Wink, CHM, serves in Chiapas, Mexico, as a parish worker and psychotherapist. She reflects on her personal experience during the pandemic, "Another thing that is clear to me is that we can’t go back to how it was. There have to be changes in how we have meetings, how we celebrate, how we meet and greet…because now all have been changed in some way by this experience. Every single person has learned something more, changed in some way, caught on to something, etc. so why do we go back and do the same things in the same ways if we are not the same?"

Indeed, I consider the sufferings of the present to be nothing compared with the glory that will be revealed in us.
