Sisters of Mary Morning Star


They are contemplative Sisters who live in the heart of the world in order to respond to the call of the Holy Spirit for the New Evangelization. As non-cloistered contemplative sisters, they welcome people to their convents and chapels for prayer, lectio divina, or a simple listening ear.

The four main aspects of the charism are prayer, fraternal charity, search for truth, and manual work. Their contemplative vocation calls them to a life of silent prayer centered on the mystery of the Eucharist, living fraternal charity in joy, mutual trust, and the gift of themselves to their sisters.

Faithful to the tradition of the Church, especially the documents of Vatican II, and the teachings of St. Thomas Aquinas and of Aristotle, their formation allows them to read the Word of God as a living word and enter more profoundly into theology.
