Mission
chgchap72wdpi.jpg
As a contemplative community our primary mission is to be women of prayer.  

Rather than live this out in a  monastery we seek,
by preference, to live among those groups that are inaccessible to other forms of Church ministry, are minorities, or whose day to day life is marked by division, racism, poverty or violence.

This way of  Presence to others is central to our life.  
What we do is a very small thing but one which we feel can be an important sign of hope and healing in a broken world.
Not a passive approach, "presence" is what we learn from Jesus through the Incarnation.  It  is a dynamic way of simply placing oneself within situations in such a way that one's very life becomes rooted and dependent upon what happens there.
