Our Community.Prayer.Oblates & Associates.Retreats.News .
      
We are a community of Anglican Sisters who have been living, praying and ministering in Melbourne for more than 125 years. The Archbishop of Melbourne is the Visitor of the Commmunity.
      
We believe that God has called us to give our whole being to him, within this Community. Each Sister offers herself to God to be used in his service . We believe that this is how we may best respond to his love for us, and in so doing, we are enabled to become fully ourselves.
       
The purpose of the Community is to give glory to God, and to share in the ministry of God's healing and reconciling love through prayer and service. We seek to proclaim Jesus as Saviour and Lord.

“Few people seem aware of the many hungry souls there are, who are longing for some sympathetic soul to speak to them about spiritual things. Sanctified common sense is what is needed, tact to deal wisely with all comers...”   Mother Esther.
