VOCATIONS TUESDAY: Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles

Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles


(Benedictines of Mary, also known as the Oblates of Mary, in Massachusetts.)
The Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles is a traditional monastic community of women who desire to imitate the Blessed Virgin Mary in the giving of herself to God to fulfill His Will, especially in her role of assistance by prayer and work to the Apostles, first priests of the Catholic Church.

Originally established in the diocese of Scranton, Pennsylvania, the congregation now operates in that of Kansas City-St. Joseph in Missouri. The congregation is now eleven years old, and is dedicated to the imitation of Our Lady’s retirement from the world in quiet seclusion, as well as her apostolic charity.

Unmarried Catholic women of sound mind and body with spiritual maturity, ages 16 through 30 may begin a correspondence with Mother Therese regarding a vocation to the religious life. She will send a series of questionnaires, and will possibly allow for the opportunity to spend at least a week’s time experiencing our life of prayer and work within the enclosure.

Serious inquirers may write to:

  • Priory of Our Lady of Ephesus
    Reverend Mother Therese
    1400 NE 42nd Terrace
    Kansas City, Missouri 64116

    Thanks for this! Would you mind mentioning the blogs to your readers, just generally?

  2. markadm – sorry about getting your coment trapped in spam purgatory! Links will do that from time to time – if you notice that happening again, leave a comment noting I should go spam-diving, ok?

    Tradvocations.blogspot.com is where I got the info for this post… I credited them as such at the end… In the next few weeks I will do a blogroll of several such places… Thanks for pointing them out – I hadn’t looked much at the FSSP blog you mention…

    Keep an eye out in the next few weeks or months (I forget when!) I have about 30-post-dated “VOCATIONS TUESDAY” post scheduled that will be appearing every, (go figure) Tuesday! The FSSP has their day in the sun…

    The amazing and encouraging this is that I could easily sit down in the course of an afternoon and find a year’s worth of weekly posts about 52 DIFFERENT growing and dynamic communities… I still haven’t figured out if I should start a different feature altogether for the vast number of US diocese that are experiencing upticks and positive growth trends – I am thinking I will feature them in a seperate fashion…

    Thanks for the comment & suggestion. Keep stopping by and feel free to mention any others that come to mind!
