Vowed Consecration

A Sister, Servant of the Immaculate Heart of Mary responds to the gift of Christ’s call by dedicating herself totally to God through the profession of public vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience.

By her vow of chastity, a sister commits herself to a life of consecrated celibacy by which she prefers God above all, a love that integrates all human relationships. Since celibate love is apostolic, a sister gives of her time, talents, and love for the building up of the Body of Christ.

By her vow of poverty, a sister accepts her dependence on God’s Providence. Relieved of personal material concerns, she is free to direct her heart to the building up of the Body of Christ. She becomes a witness by her personal life that God alone suffices.

By her vow of obedience, a sister offers her will to the Father to enter more decisively into his redemptive plan and to engage more fully in the apostolic mission of the Church.
