Spirituality

We embrace the motto of St. John Paul II, “Totus Tuus: Totally Yours,” and consecrate ourselves to Mary. We seek to live out every moment of our life of prayer in ‘Passionate Love for the Immaculata’ through a threefold intimacy with her Son. Uniting with the charisms of the Franciscan order, we fall victim to her Son’s merciful Love, adore her Son Incarnate, and espouse her Son Crucified. Love of the Immaculata is never complete unless her Son is its source, and Our Lady would have nothing less.
     Some aspects of our spirituality and devotions include Marian Consecration, daily Mass, daily Adoration, daily Liturgy of the Hours, daily Mental Prayer, daily Rosary, daily Divine Mercy Chaplet, the Stations of the Cross, Praise, Fasting, Silence, and Spiritual Reading.
     Our patrons are Our Lady of Fatima, Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Pope St. John Paul II, St. Francis of Assisi, and St. Clare of Assisi.
