About Us

"For the past eighteen years, ACS has been an integral part of my large acsisters orans logospiritual life and, as I pass through each stage, it is there to support, listen and encourage me. Each year, this sisterhood means more to me...I am constantly challenged to see things through the eyes of a contemplative...As I live my life in my mountain home outside of Los Angeles, ACS is always there..."

Fran Burras in Cloister of the Heart

ACS is composed of three regions: Eastern, Central and Western. Within each region are clusters—informal gatherings of members in various localities.

We meet regularly to strengthen our bonds of support and friendship. Each region hosts a Biennial Regional Meeting. In alternate years we hold Biennial General Assemblies designed for all members. Local clusters meet more frequently at times set by their members.

We gather to listen, pray and share our lives.

























And we have our talent shows!
