CMRI Sisters

The motherhouse of the Sisters of Mary Immaculate Queen is located here at Mount St. Michael, just north of Spokane, Washington. Their Marian spirit is evident in their full-length blue habits, complete with Rosary and Miraculous Medal, and in their determination to do all their actions “to Jesus through Mary.”

As for their works, the Marian Sisters engage in teaching and parish work as well as promoting Catholic publications and other media. Here at Mount St. Michael they staff a K-12 Catholic academy, a print shop, and a religious bookstore and mail order center. In 1979, the Sisters also began making recordings as the “Singing Nuns,” a work which has proved to be a kind of mission as well as a means of financial support.
