Thank you for your prayerful support and help that will allow future generations to be formed here in Illinois to serve throughout the world in the spirit of Saint John.

Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Psalm 127:1


We need your help!

Thanks to your support and financial aid, in 2015 we were able to build the first stage of our convent which presently serves as our novitiate building. However, the professed Sisters are still living in the small A-Frame house that has become unstable and no longer safe to continue living in.

We owe a big THANK YOU to
Dr. Edward Leo Herod for his generous contribution that has covered a good portion of our building project, notably for our future chapel.
Please join us in prayer for him, and for all of his intentions, with grateful hearts!

Chapel of our Motherhouse in France

There are currently 5 Professed Sisters here in Princeville and 5 novices. Because our primary mission here is to teach and to provide a formative environment for our Sisters in formation, the time we can consecrate to fundraising is limited.
This is why we humbly ask for your help.

Can you help us to build a convent that will allow us to live in a home favorable to our monastic life? 

We have nearly finished our plans of a building project that would include a chapel (our current chapel is a transformed garage!), living quarters, a refectory, a kitchen, a library, and all that is needed for a stable house of formation. Our chapel will include a basement which will serve to welcome guests and host youth retreats and activities.


Relatively small amounts, given regularly, add up to significant sums. You may wish to simply make a once-off donation, but please consider your potential to make a monthly gift.We hope that the table below will help you to consider the value of your financial support.

Please consider helping us to build this house for the glory of God and for the good of all those who will be formed in this house.


We pray for you, and for all of your intentions!
