The Community of St. Mary, Southern Province, is a women’s Benedictine community within the Episcopal Church.  Our patron, St. Mary, is our model for our “yes” to God, through which we respond to the temporal and spiritual needs of our society through daily worship and prayer, the nurture of spiritual growth and the practice of responsible stewardship.  We provide a quiet, friendly environment where we and others may listen to God, and we endeavor, in concrete ways, to put into action the lessons we learn from our corporate and individual reflections on God’s Word.  We also try to promote a healthy, balanced lifestyle that promotes care for the body, the soul, and the earth.
