Children of Mary Doll
A woman named Monica found our website and loved it, and wanted to help promote our community, so she made this doll and sent us a picture. She makes dolls of many communities and gives them to a private all girls Catholic school. If you would like to order a doll from her, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org

They serve once a week at a soup kitchen in town, and they set up an adoration chapel at the soup kitchen. Although I think their main apostolate is hosting retreats (again not 100% sure, but I will ask).
I know their website is hard to pick through, but they starting the process of updating it. When I was with them today one of the sisters was going through a couple html/css how-to books. If you want you can pm me a list of more specific questions you want answered and I can take it directly to the sisters later this week.

Can someone tell me more about these sisters? Unfortunately, I had the hardest time picking through their website to find information about their apostolate, etc. Are they non-cloistered contemplatives?? Thanks!
Their order is what you would call "semi-contemplative." They have a little more prayer time than active/contemplative orders, but not as much as cloistered orders. All orders call their nuns' quarters "cloisters." When I did a live-in for about 3 days with the Carmelite Sisters of the Divine Heart of Jesus (active/contemplative), the door to the private hallway of the Sisters was labelled "cloister." It allows them the privacy they need, but it doesn't separate them completely.

Thanks guys-I contacted the Sisters for more information, and I am not right for them..but they sure are lovely!
They really are. If I felt called to pursue semi-contemplative life such as theirs, I'd check them out, but I feel more of a pull to a be a missionary.
