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
“As the youngest member of our community we certainly support Sister Lynn and encourage her participation in Giving Voice,” said Sister Mary Ann Vogel, the CHM president. “We need to move away from the diminishment narrative of religious life. There will be a future and the women of Giving Voice will be among those leading us into the future.”

A Nun's Pocket, CHM Blog - November is a special month for the Congregation of the Humility of Mary (CHM) as they dedicate this time of thanksgiving to remembering their own departed loved ones and also praying for all the departed listed in the “Book of Eternal Life”. As Catholics, we believe that death does not end the strong connections of faith, family and friendship that unite us during our lifetime. Sister Rachel Beeson, CHM, stated, “The departed are still with us and yet we pray that they are with God. It makes us feel better to remember them in prayer in November and throughout the year.”

So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.

-2 Corinthians 5:6-8
