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
After some scrambling, the groups came up with a solution to carry through this winter: The King's Harvest emergency shelter will remain open...

A Nun's Pocket, CHM Blog - The retreat center property has always been a focus of the sisters to protect, restore and care for the land. To that end, not long after the Land Ethic was adopted, the CHMS decided to dedicate about 80 acres of the prairie property as a conservation easement – an agreement which is recorded in the local land records and becomes a chain of title for the property.

Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on Earth peace to those on whom God's favor rests.

Luke 2:14
