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
“Kindness: Get in the Habit” — was created to counter the continued divisiveness seen throughout the country. It will be shared on billboards, in movie theater ads, through social media posts and in Catholic school classrooms. Sister Johanna Rickl, president of the Congregation of the Humility of Mary in Davenport, adds, “In a world where exclusion and violence increase, it is essential that hospitality, compassion and kindness be nurtured with ever greater commitment.”

A Nun's Pocket, CHM Blog - In a world where exclusion and violence increase, it is essential that hospitality, compassion and kindness be nurtured with ever greater commitment. The "Kindness" campaign is both a response to the incivility that continues to permeate talk shows and social media, and a call to Gospel values such as caring for the poor.

Grow your kindness in me. Teach me to understand, Lord. Teach me what it is to be thirsty, hungry, fearful, lonely, sick, imprisoned. Teach me what it is to lose everything. Teach me what it is to lose hope. Let my new understanding grow your kindness in me, grow your mercy in me, grow your forgiveness in me, grow your love in me. Amen.
