Our community was
founded in 2006 in the Diocese of Peoria, IL. We live out our
charism of total trust in God and striving for limitless
humility in imitation of John the Baptist and in the spirit of
Franciscan simplicity. Daily conversion is an expression of our
desire to decrease so that Christ can increase in our lives. A
daily Holy Hour offered for priests and seminarians is an
essential part of our charism. We are a contemplative-active
community faithful to the Holy Father and to the Magisterium of
the Church, and we live a joyful and strong community life
rooted in the Eucharist and in a solid prayer life.
Our apostolate includes healthcare, domestic and clerical work,
evangelization and other ecclesial ministries with future plans
for a teaching apostolate.
We welcome single young women ages 18-35 with adequate bodily
and mental health, sufficiently mature personality, good
judgment and common sense.
