The Joy of the Lord is Our Strength
We cannot contain the joy that the Lord gives us; we want the whole world to know His deep love for them! We commit ourselves to growing in intimacy daily with the Lord and sharing that love throug prayerful intercession, hospitality and evangelization. Our ministry flows from our prayer and our community life, where we allow the love of the Lord to overflow on to our sisters, and in turn to the Church and the world.
We Love with the Heart of Mary
We daily consecrate ourselves to our Blessed Mother, and seek to imitate her virtues of profound humility, lively faith, blind obedience, continual mental prayer, mortification in all things, surpassing purity, ardent charity, heroic patience, angelic sweetness and Divine wisdom.
We pray to radiate the feminine heart of Mary, and in doing so to act as a beacon of hope .
"The mission of the Queenship of Mary Community is to assist Our Blessed Mother, Queen of Heaven. and Earth, in gathering together a spiritual army, in an unfailing endeavour to bring God’s children out of the darkness back into His marvellous Light."
-excerpt from the Queenship of Mary Community Constitution
As religious sisters we seek to fully embrace our evangelical counsels of chastity, poverty and obedience, and devote ourselves totally to the Lord in a life of prayer and sacrifice for the world. We have a special devotion to Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament and strive daily to come before Him in Eucharistic Adoration. We implore God's grace through our sacramental life, praying the Divine Office, the Holy Rosary, the Divine Mercy Chaplet as well as Praise and Worship.
We pray daily for our priests who have such an important ministry and call in the world, and we seek opportunities to assist them in their mission of evangelization. As Mary would care for her Son Jesus, we strive to care for our priest sons who are "In Persona Christi". We also seek to imitate Mary, Mother of the Church and show our motherly care towards all her children.
Hospitality is the "Creative Art of Love"
We use our varied gifts to find creative ways to foster in our home and the places we minister an atmosphere of peace, love, joy as a place of encounter with the Lord.
We offer a ministry of prescence to the Church and to the world, striving to embrace all opportunities to proclaim Jesus as our Lord and Redeemer to all we meet, and to offer ourselves as visible signs of the hope that God is planting in the Church. We open our hearts to the Holy Spirit so as to always be available for the work of the New Evangelization.
