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.


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
How One Of Our Sisters Is Working Towards Mercy, Justice And Peace

How One Of Our Sisters Is Working Towards Mercy, Justice And Peace

We recently received a copy of the annual report from All Saints Church in Ashmont where Sr. Christine gives her time. In the report is a paragraph (shown below) about Sr. Christine’s work with their choir. In addition to acting as choir mother at All Saints, Sr. Christine helps with the alter flowers at St. Mary’s Church in Dorchester. At other times Sr. Christine can be found crocheting hats and scarves for the homeless and prayer shawls for patients in local hospitals. It is our mission to help those in need and we as Sisters are committed to partner with others who share our passion for a world of justice, mercy and peace. Sr. Christine and all of us at the Society of St. Margaret feel privileged for the opportunity to work with All Saints and many other churches, organizations and communities as we care for “the least of these” in Jesus’ name. If you would like to connect with a Sister about partnering with the Society of St. Margaret in outreach or mission, please email sisters@ssmbos.org or call 781-934-9477 ext. 501.... read more
