Each person is given an invitation to follow Christ. The Sisters of our monastic
community respond to that invitation by an intentional living out of the vows of
poverty, chastity, and obedience within the structure of a modified Augustinian Rule.
Through the vow of poverty, we profess our trusting dependence upon God by embracing
voluntary simplicity and responsible stewardship of creation. Through chastity,
we profess the sanctity of all creation as the primary revelation of God. Through
obedience, we profess our desire to be dependent on God’s direction and to live and
minister in ways that respect all creation, both now and for generations to come.
Compassionate, respectful love is God’s gift to life. Prayer and the worship of
God are the lifeblood and heart of our Community and the source of inspiration for
all that we undertake. Through our prayer, worship, and creative talents we encourage
others to seek God. Through our ministries of hospitality, retreat work, spiritual
direction, and education through simple, sustainable, spiritual living, we seek to
grow in love and communion with all whose lives touch us and are touched by us. We
also provide spiritual support for women and men who wish to be linked with our Community
as Associates. By adopting a personal rule of life, they extend the Community’s
ministry through prayer, worship and service.
