Discerning women.


Our convent in Ghent is the novitiate for women discerning in the United States. It's also a home to some of our novices and professed sisters. 

Artisanal Work

Work is an essential part of monastic life and a fundamental dimension of the human person. Our work consists in our daily chores and artisanal work. In order to support our needs, we produce artisanal works that we sell during craft sales at parishes and in our convent gift shop.

"The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” Let the hearer say, “Come.” Let the one who thirsts come forward, and the one who wants it receive the gift of life-giving water."
