We are a contemplative active community founded in 2006 in Peoria, Illinois. According to the example of John the Baptist, we strive to live our charism of trusting God in profound humility. We live a strong and joyful community life rooted in the celebration of the Eucharist from which we draw strength for our apostolate and a life of sacrifice. We pray the Liturgy of the Hours in common, as well as, the rosary, divine mercy chaplet, and other prayers. Our life balances prayer, work, and recreation. We serve our brothers and sisters according to the needs of the Church in the fields of healthcare, education, and diocesan ministries. An indispensable part of our consecrated life is dedication to prayer and support of priests and seminarians.
