Website Review: Madonna House

A review based on:


Catherine de Hueck Doherty founded Madonna House with her husband, Eddie Doherty, in 1947. Today the community has about 200 laymen, women, and priests, dedicated to loving and serving Christ. The members of Madonna House make promises of poverty, chastity and obedience. They live a life of voluntary poverty, giving up our personal possessions and incomes. Their programs include retreats and spiritual direction for the laity as well as programs for priests. This website serves as a good introduction to Madonna House and its worthy work.
