“Enter through the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many go that way. How narrow is the gate that leads to life and how rough the road; few there are who find it”
Drawn equally by the contemplative and apostolic ideals, the Society of Our Mother of Peace aims to combine and balance strong elements of the contemplative life with the essential features of the apostolic life.
Living in material simplicity, members dwell in separate hermitages or in a religious house setting. Several hours daily of solitary prayer along with the Liturgy in common, foster intimacy with God and zeal for the evangelization of the unchurched and non-practicing Catholics, and for helping people deepen their spiritual life through private retreats, spiritual talks, spiritual direction and a full time Associate program.
Come away with us for a day or weeklong retreat or even a longer period to discern your own personal steps towards becoming truly free in and for Christ.

Prayer to Our Mother of Peace
O Mother of Jesus and Our Mother full of grace, bear His peace, His presence, His holiness, your Divine Son into our very souls; nourish our minds with His mind for lowliness; our hearts with His heart for self-giving; our souls with His soul for quietness, resting in His Father’s Will; all our energies with His strength for zeal; and with your holy maternal love support each step of your little ones as they cling to you and strive to walk in His likeness. Amen.
