The Society is composed of priests, brothers, and sisters. Drawn equally by contemplative and apostolic ideals, the Society of Our Mother of Peace aims to combine and balance the basic elements of the contemplative life with the essential features of the apostolic life, without diminishing the intensity of either. Living in material simplicity and poverty, members dwell in separate hermitages, or a convent house. Several hours of solitary prayer and the Liturgy in common foster union with God and zeal for the two-fold apostolate of the evangelization of the unchurched, especially in the inner city, and helping persons deepen their spiritual life through spiritual direction and solitary retreats.
Ages 22-55 are welcome to apply and are invited to a discernment retreat with the community.
