St. Michael Convent

On August 15, 2017 (the Assumption of Our Lady), St. Michael Convent in the Camden Diocese was dedicated by Bishop Dennis Sullivan and four CFR sisters have been serving in Atlantic City ever since! The sisters live at St. Michael’s Convent and have a drop-in center for the homeless next door to St. Nicholas Tolentine Church. The drop-in center is called Fr. Benedict House named after Fr. Benedict Groeschel, CFR one of the eight founders of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal.

The building also serves as a formation house for the St. Michael Missionaries who work alongside the sisters and live a life of community, prayer, and ministry. The sisters have an expansive outreach to the very poor and needy of the Atlantic City area as well as apostolates of evangelization.
