The Vatican II document on religious, Perfectae Caritatis, states simply that "the religious habit, an outward mark of consecration to God, should be simple and modest, poor and at the same becoming." Our simple yet becoming habit of blue and white witnesses to our consecration and our Marian spirit. We wear it joyfully in imitation of Christ Who humbled Himself in taking on our humanity an being wrapped in swaddling clothes. This mystery, and all the mysteries of Christ's life, are called to mind each day by the Rosary and crucifix each Sister wears at her side. The habit in itself has an important evangelical impact, but its efficacy depends largely on it manifesting a simple yet profound interior life.
Finally, after the witness of the life itself, the habit we wear, the manner we strive to work, comes the witness of our 'labors of love' for God and His people in this Diocese. These labors are primarily directed at fulfilling the two main aspects of our charism: joyful evangelization and support of the Sacred Liturgy. As Marian Sisters we are animated by a desire to magnify Jesus Christ in and through our lives of consecration to Mary. She teaches us how to mirror Christ to the world and we pray that she will share with us her strength of mind and her courageous will so that we can serve our Spouse faithfully.
