Welcome to the Sisters of the Incarnate Word website. It is with great joy that we invite you to learn more about our Sisters, our history, our ministries, and our foundress, Jeanne Chézard de Matel.
In the spirit of our foundress, we live each day in an attitude of contemplation and service, with a desire to continue to be God’s human face today. Our hope is that you too will share our passion for God’s love in our world, incarnate in the person of Jesus.
Enjoy your visit to our site, and please feel free to visit our property where you may light a candle at Queen of the Holy Rosary Shrine, pray at the outdoor Stations of the Cross, or walk the Labyrinth; Path of Blessings. You are always welcome here.

Our Congregation is a community of women, centered in the person of Jesus, faithfully sharing the tradition that has been passed on to us by Jeanne Chézard de Matel, our foundress. We witness that God’s reign is in our midst by walking in the spirit of Jesus: compassionate, poor, gentle, single hearted, patient in suffering, longing for truth and justice, merciful, and peace- making. We “extend the mystery of the Incarnation,” in Word and Sacrament, by sharing in the life and mission of Jesus.
