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.

Please Join Us On Social Media For A Virtual St. Margaret’s Day Celebration

Each summer we come together with friends, Associates and Sisters to celebrate St. Margaret’s Day. This year with the Chapel project not yet at completion we decided to engage all of our community by taking St. Margaret’s Day online in a virtual format. We hope you will keep this special day with us by participating via social media. The Sisters of St. Margaret are on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and Pinterest and we invite you to use your chosen platform(s) to share with us on this day. Please feel free to post memories of St. Margaret’s Day in the past, hopes for the future, photos of your personal worship space or thoughts from your local Eucharist. Just be sure to use the hashtag #stmargaretsday2016 so that we can find you! We’ll be sharing our own messages throughout the day as well!

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
