This is a faith-based intentional community of Roman Catholic sisters that is forming around the values of simplicity, sustainability, justice and service in a commitment to living Gospel values and doing service, along the lines of the new monasticism in the Christian tradition. We take our name from the Beguine communities of women in medieval christianity.
Visitor Process: We will have housing soon. In the interim, we would be happy to 'do coffee' with those interested.
