The charism of the Daughters of Mary of the Immaculate Conception flows from a deep love and profound trust in God as proclaimed in Mary’s Magnificat. With joyful and grateful hearts, we courageously follow in Mary’s footsteps. Responsive to God’s love we desire to receive and present Jesus to the World.
We give thanks to God for the gift of a distinctive Marian Spirituality. Inspired by Mary’s Magnificat, our spirituality is manifested by a deep trust in God in the fullness of Mary’s Fiat: “Be it done to me according to your Word.” We live in Marian communities sustained and nourished by the Eucharist and communal prayer. We cherish and seek to express in our daily lives and in our ministries Mary’s virtues of simplicity, humility, and selfless care and concern for others. Our Marian spirituality impels us to reach out to others, especially the young, the elderly, the sick, the poor, and the needy to share with them the gifts God has given to us.
We, the Daughters of Mary of the nImmaculate Conception, declare our mission is to bring the loving and healing presence of Christ into our worldnwith the gentle courage and faithful commitment of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
We believe that the source and the strength of all our endeavors is in the distinctiveness of our vocation as a Daughter consecrated to continue the Gospel mission of Jesus.
We believe in the sacredness and uniqueness of all life and we reverence the value each life expresses at every stage of life from conception to death.
We believe our religious family is born in the Church, of the Church and for the Church as a sign of God’s loving care and concern for His people.
We believe human and spiritual development are inseparable. Our care of the body and of the mind is continuous with our loving attention to the spiritual in ourselves and in all whom we serve.
We believe that we are called to community, sharing and enriching each other so that we are beacons of hope in a darkened world where increasing fear and violence threatens the lives of all, especially the young and the elderly.
We believe in the richness of our cultural pluralism, where ethnic diversity and giftedness mirror God’s image, thereby ennobling all of humanity.
