Mother Joanne, our foundress here in Wichita, constantly reminded us, “You have come here first to become saints!” In our life seeking union with God is primary. Mary pondered in her Heart all the mysteries of her Divine Son’s life (Luke 2:51); as our mother, model, protectress and guide, she teaches us to do the same.

Thus, our primary service to the Church is contemplation of the Word. In union with Mary, we pray for the Church, especially for the conversion of sinners and for the sanctification of priests. Our spirituality is Eucharistic and Marian. Devotion to the Immaculate and Sorrowful Heart of Mary leads us to her Eucharistic Son and she nurtures within us a deep and abiding love for and obedience to His Mystical Body, the Church. The heart of our life and the source of our unity is Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament.
