The Congregation of the Humility of Mary held an open house in Davenport, Iowa, to celebrate the Year of Consecrated Life, according to The Quad-City Times. Guests were invited to learn more about the congregation’s various ministries, history, and consecrated life in general.

“We just wanted people to become more acquainted with us,” Sister Barb Kopel said. “It was just the gift of God we got such a beautiful day.”

The order was founded in France more than 150 years ago. Now, the community strives for justice by sponsoring an emergency homeless shelter and transitional housing for single-parent families and hosting retreats at Our Lady of the Prairie Retreat Center.

The congregation has celebrated the Year of Consecrated Life in various ways and collaborates with lay women and men of all faiths through an associates program.

Throughout the event, attendees were encouraged to ask questions and learn more about the work of the sisters and the various ministries they sponsor.
