Community Life

A community of 74 members comprise the American Province of the Congregation.  St. Anne Province Center in Melbourne, KY is “home” and province headquarters. It serves as the gathering space for liturgies and celebrations.  Adjoining the Province Center is the retirement home and health care facility.

Sisters live in small community groups throughout the United States, located near their ministries. They usually pray morning and evening prayer together and share their reflections on scripture or spiritual topics during regular faith sharing.  They eat together when their ministry schedule allows and share responsibility for the upkeep of the local convent where they live.  The sisters relax together with card games, Scrabble, watching TV or enjoying a movie.

At the beginning of each ministry year, they set common goals based upon Congregational goals or our Constitutions.
