Vowed Consecration

Alphonsian Spirituality also implies a commitment to the redeeming Christ first by consecrated dedication to the three vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience.

First ProfessionBy her vow of chastity, a sister commits herself to a life of consecrated celibacy; the spirit of this vow frees her to live out her vocation to love in a deeper personal union with Christ.

By the vow of poverty, a sister freely renounces her natural right to the independent use of material goods. The spirit of poverty relieves her for personal material concerns and frees her to direct her heart to the building up of the Kingdom.

By the vow of obedience, a sister unites herself more completely to the Will of God by freely yielding her right of free choice in order to engage more fully in the apostolic mission of the Church.
