    Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Charism

    The congregation, working for the extension of God’s Kingdom, has a dual purpose:

                  • The Conversion of Sinners
                  • The Christianization of Society

Since the Church recognizes that consecrated life is God’s gift to her and forms “an intimate part of her life, her holiness and her mission” (LG.44) she encourages each consecrated person to make a complete self-offering.  Such self-offering requires a total conversion, daily “transfigured existence” as Vita Consecrata calls it.

Formation, initial as well as on-going, occurs within the community.  Not only is formation provided for all members, at whatever stage of life they find themselves, but the passing on of the spirit of the Institute is assured for future generations.

The Spirit prompts us to be conformed to Christ.  Our formation program acts as a foundation, an impetus, to move us forward on our journey.  It will be as effective as the command we have heard and obeyed, “to leave everything behind for the sake of Christ” (Mt. 4:18-22). 

We, Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary proclaim with the prophet Elijah “With zeal have I been zealous for the Lord God of Hosts,” and we embrace fully the words of our Father Founder Fr. Joaquin Masmitja “since prayer will lead you to the heart of your Divine spouse and the discovery of the divine perfection, whenever possible, put all your delight in so holy a task” (CF/52, p.3)

Following the example of Fr. Joaquin Masmitja, we strive to imitate Christ’s life as presented in the Gospel.  Our special bond with Mary influences our whole approach to holiness.  Mary is the mother of vocations who inspires holy desires.  The way in which we imitate Mary in our vows inspires young women to follow us.


God our heavenly Father, we place our trust in you as we ask you to bless our Congregation with good and holy vocations.

May young women who are mature and responsible be inspired to take the risk of serving You in a community life of prayer, simplicity, trust, and love.

May You place in their hearts the desire to follow Jesus, to love the Church, and to be ahappy in the ministry of evangelization, following the Charism of our Father Founder.

We thank You and we praise You for Your great love for us.  We ask You to grant our prayer throught Mary our Immaculate Mother.
