About us

The Sisters of Maria Stella Matutina (The Sisters of Mary Morning Star)
an international contemplative community have recently opened a convent in Grayshott (Hampshire), Portsmouth Diocese

 

srsPraying

They desire to live a life of prayer and adoration, their mission is to be a silent witnesses of Christ’s love for the Church and for all men. Each day the sisters gather together to participate in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, to pray in silent adoration before the Blessed Sacrament, and to sing the Divine Office. They also reserve times for solitary prayer in their cells.

The sisters consecrate their mornings to studying the Word of God, the theological teaching of the Church and philosophy of the human person. They like to share their formation, especially with young people.

The sisters dedicate their afternoons to manual work, they make calligraphied cards, pottery, handmade liturgical linen and incense, jams/biscuits/cakes. Their monastic crafts help to supply for their needs, yet due to the demands of their life of prayer, they are unable to fully meet the costs of daily life. For this reason they gratefully accept donations from benefactors (details below).
