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.

Penny actually came to us from New Orleans, before Katrina. There were many available golden retrievers in the South and much demand in the Northeast. She was brought from Louisiana up to the Boston area where Sr. Adele Marie and Sr. Carolyn picked her up. They had found her in an adoption listing online.
