Order of Morning Star Sisters ~ OMS

After exploring more than 300 religious orders worldwide, and with the support of devoted spiritual directors, MorningStar took her first vows as a religious hermitess on

17 August 1998.


Within a Native Ceremony and Holy Mass, the founding of the religious Order of Morning Star Sisters was born on 17 August 2003. Kinsters from diverse religious practices and ethnic backgrounds gathered to support MorningStar in making perpetual vows as a Cherokee hermitess and Catholic mystic. Her life work and the charisma of the new Order of Morning Star Sisters was dedicated to the preservation of simple and sacred birth.

On 17 August 2008 MorningStar celebrated her first decade as a vowed hermitess.  Within an ecumenical mass MorningStar was named Mother Clare.  2018 is the 20th anniversary of MorningStar’s original vows.

Sister MorningStar observes daily disciplines including a monastic Day of Silence on Wednesdays.

OMS Vision ~

To embody the fullest expression of our divine nature and reflect it in the world around us.


OMS Mission ~

To preserve simple and sacred birth among global peoples.


OMS Guiding Scripture and Principle ~

“Do to no one what you yourself dislike. Give to the hungry some of your bread, and to the naked some of your clothing. Seek council from every wise elder. At all times bless and ask your Creator to make all your paths straight and to grant success to all your endeavors.”

~ Tobit 4:15a, 16a, 18a, 19


OMS Associates ~

Each year on 8 December (Immaculate Conception of Mary), the Associates of the Order of Morning Star Sisters gather to offer prayer, recite the Maternal Rosary*, make prayer beads and enjoy a retreat day of peace and reflection. The informal gathering is

followed by a Vegan feast. New associates are welcome following an innerview. To inquire about the OMS Associates write directly to sister@sistermorningstar.com.

*The Maternal Rosary is based on the traditional rosary of Mary. It is adapted to be a special prayer for pregnant mothers today. We recite the rosary using the names of pregnant mothers who have asked for our prayers. You can purchase a copy of the

Maternal Rosary and a finger rosary on our MarketPlace.


May the Simple & Sacred lead us to a more peace-filled planet.

Help support our cause! 

In our modern world, it is not easy to let what is natural be natural – to honor a knowing that existed before we did. It is even more difficult to preserve it. If it is not preserved within us, it will not be preserved in our families and communities, our policies, our hospitals, our schools or our nations. Most importantly, it becomes lost to our future generations.


Your contribution helps sustain the Holyland and the Spiritual Retreat Centre for Instinctual Living. The Centre offers programs of education and spiritual direction specifically for midwifery, childbirth, wellness therapies, yoga, as well as personal and collective spiritual retreats.  


We are a diverse community and I, the founder, am a woodland Mystic of Cherokee ancestry. I place all donations on my altar in Rose Cottage to receive a blessing of return for your happiness, health, wealth and holiness. If you send a donation, please include a love note.  


“I promise to live, in ever growing awareness, a life of simplicity; to give more than I take and to quiet the mind to single and simple purpose; to live with the knowledge that I am the temporary guardian of all I possess and to stand ready to share when love calls.”
