Welcome to the Society of St. Margaret

We are an Episcopal Religious Order of mission focused Sisters living an ancient tradition with a modern outlook, and are called to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ through our worship and work, prayer and common life. Our commitment to God and to one another is expressed through vows of poverty, celibate chastity and obedience.  As we offer hospitality and holy space to individuals and groups at our Convent, work with inner-city children and the indigent elderly, serve in parishes, and lead retreats and quiet days, we seek always to live as Christ’s hands and heart in this world.


Exploring The Role Of Associate With The Sisters of St. Margaret

Exploring The Role Of Associate With The Sisters of St. Margaret

  On May 22nd, the Sisters of St. Margaret held an event at the convent for those interested in learning more about Associates of the Society of St. Margaret.  These events are always full of great questions and engaging discussions. Associates play an important role in our community and we look forward to welcoming new associates. As a community, the Sisters of St. Margaret are richly blessed by having over 300 Associates connected to the American House of the Society. This includes Associates in Haiti. Other SSM Associates are connected with the convents in the United Kingdom and include Associates in Sri Lanka. An Associate lives by a Rule of Life which is formulated with the Director of Associates as part of the process of becoming an Associate. Such a Rule fits the circumstances of her or his life. An Associate is a witness in the world to the value of living an intentional, prayerful life in the world. Associates are also ambassadors of the Society of St. Margaret, for Associates belong to faith communities where the Religious Life may be unknown or not very well understood. They can make people aware that there are Sisters (and monks and friars) in the Episcopal Church. We will be scheduling more prospective Associate events soon and if you or someone you know is interested, please contact Sister Carolyn at:  781 934 9477 x 702 or by email Carolyn@ssmbos.org, or by snail mail. You can also visit the Associates page here on our website for further details. Please don’t wait for our next event.  If you feel you are being called to connect with us... read more
Spring Associates Tea at St. Margaret’s Convent Duxbury

Spring Associates Tea at St. Margaret’s Convent Duxbury

On Saturday April 9th, 2016 the Sisters of St. Margaret held our Spring Associates Tea at the Mother House in Duxbury, MA. This is a time for Associates to connect with one another, hear what’s happening with the community and spend time with the Sisters. We had a lovely turnout and Associates learned the latest information about the Chapel, the Prayer cards for the Chapel floor, and St. Margaret’s Day. We also invited our Social Media Manager, April Merrill from Coastal Mountain Creative to speak for a few moments about the success we’re having, and the path we’re taking, to increase awareness for the Sisters of St. Margaret and grow our audience online.     We did of course also have wonderful tea, finger sandwiches and some lovely treats. It was a time to share stories of the past and hopes for the future. Walking around the room you could hear amazing memories of the Convent and experiences with Sisters from days gone by. One of our Associates spoke of attending camp on the property 40 years prior. We all chuckled, reminiscing over memories of Bertram being the newest building on campus. It doesn’t seem possible that enough time has gone by that it’s now in critical need for restoration! (our next project following the Chapel)   The Associates Tea is an event that the Sisters all enjoy. We deeply value the commitment of our Associates and it pleases us to hear about their lives while in this intimate setting filled with support and love. The day was enjoyed by all and we sincerely look forward to the next... read more
