Priory of Our Lady of Ephesus: Gower, Missouri

The community of the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles first began in 1995, consecrated to Our Lady, and offered to her service. The sisters follow a monastic horarium as laid out by St. Benedict in his Rule, and chant (in Latin) the Divine Office according to the 1962 Breviarium Monasticum.

The sisters follow their call to emulate Mary in her final, hidden years at Ephesus, where, by tradition, she spiritually supported and encouraged St. John and the other Apostles. They offer their lives in prayer and sacrifice for priests, whom they see as the new apostles of the Church, and as their spiritual sons, who bear God's truth to the world. They extend customary Benedictine hospitality most especially to priests, offering them the spiritual refurbishment so often denied them in their work.

Their monastic "labora" — other than their everyday domestic responsibilities (cleaning, cooking, gardening, farm work, etc.) — is devoted to making vestments, albs, surplices, and altar linens for use in the Sacrifice of the Mass.
