Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary – United States Province

Anawim Arts grew out of the work of the Loreto Sisters in Wheaton, IL. The Loreto Sisters belong to the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary, a worldwide religious community of Catholic women dedicated to serving God by responding to the needs of God’s people. They are committed to working for freedom, justice, and sincerity in our times with particular interest in the needs of women and children and those who are marginalized.

Anawim Arts is pleased to be offering many of our programs in collaboration with Tau Center. Tau Center is a spirituality ministry of the Wheaton Franciscans. The Wheaton Franciscans are a welcoming community of faith striving together to be instruments of peace, hope and justice in our world today. Tau Center offers diverse experiences where people can nourish their spirit including: Contemplation and Prayer, Creative Spirituality, Inner-Exploration and Self-Reflection and Holistic Care and Healing Arts.
