Welcome to the Society of St. Margaret

We are an Episcopal Religious Order of mission focused Sisters living an ancient tradition with a modern outlook, and are called to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ through our worship and work, prayer and common life. Our commitment to God and to one another is expressed through vows of poverty, celibate chastity and obedience.  As we offer hospitality and holy space to individuals and groups at our Convent, work with inner-city children and the indigent elderly, serve in parishes, and lead retreats and quiet days, we seek always to live as Christ’s hands and heart in this world.
