Welcome to the international website of the sisters of St. Mary of Namur.  Founded nearly two hundred years ago in a small city in Belgium, today we are present in ten countries.  Energized and united by the common Gospel call to follow Jesus we share a life of prayer, community and service.  Our lives are characterized by gospel simplicity and joy.

Today our women, discerning the signs of the times within the cultural reality of each country, serve the needs of others through education, health-care, social services, welcoming refugees and immigrants and in various other social justice activities.

I invite you to get to know more of our community, its members and its activities by connecting to the sites of our different provinces throughout the world.  You will not be disappointed in discovering lives faithful to the challenge of our international gathering in July, 2013: “We desire to be a sign of the Gospel, witnessing to the possibility of a world in which boundaries do not keep us from a life of unity and communion.”
