We are privileged to celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of Mass in both forms of the Roman Rite.
Living in accordance with the Motu Proprio, Summorum Pontificum, of 2007 written by Pope Benedict XVI, the Marian Sisters are privileged to have the sacred liturgy celebrated in both the Extraordinary (Latin tradition) and the Ordinary Forms of the Roman Rite. Currently we attend the Extraordinary Form Mass two to four times a week including Sundays. In this way we endeavor to live the fullness of the liturgical life of the Church.
Each morning the sisters offer a Eucharistic Holy Hour for Priests.
The Holy Eucharist, the source and summit of the Church's life and mission, is at the heart of our religious life. In a Marian Spirit of faith and loving adoration, our day centers around the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the presence of Jesus Christ hidden in this Sacrament of His Love. As a community we daily offer a holy hour of adoration and reparation offered in a special way for priests and priestly vocations.
St. Louis Marie de Montfort is our spiritual father who teaches us to give all to Our Lady who perfects our acts and presents them to Her Divine Son.
Taking Our Blessed Mother as our model and guide, a deep life of personal, communal and liturgical prayer animates and sustains our consecrated lives. As the Church reminds us, "contemplation of divine things and assiduous union with God in prayer is our first and foremost duty" as consecrated women. We are devoted to the Holy Rosary and celebrate Marian feasts with great solemnity. Our consecration to Our Lady permeats our lives as we give her all our thoughts, works and actions, past, present and future to perfect and present to Her Divine Son.
The sisters gather together to pray three hours from the Divine Office: Lauds (morning prayer), Vespers (evening prayer) and Compline (night prayer).
Through our love for the patrimony of Holy Mother Church we use a simple form of Gregorian Chant to pray our office. The sisters also have time during the day for mental prayer, spiritual reading and lectio divina.
