Internationally, We Are Consecrated Women

Called into the World for the World

Today our charism calls us to be a living presence of the mercy and love of God in a world being torn apart by violence.  We desire to be a presence that transforms lives through prayer and apostolic action.

Gifted with a Mission Rooted in the Heart of Jesus

We have the responsibility and joy of witnessing the risen Christ and the liberating power of the Gospel.  Our Mission is realized in a diversity of ministries in favor of life and the dignity of each person, according to the needs of every time and every place.


In The United States 


The Daughters of the Heart of Mary have existed in the U.S. since 1851.  Our spirituality is rooted in Sacred Scripture and is exemplified in lives and ministries strengthened by communal prayer and spiritual sharing...following the example of the original Christian communities. 
Faithful to our charism, we live in the world to love better, respond to the needs of God’s people, and to challenge those societal norms and laws that devalue the sanctity of human life, and the integrity of creation.  We live simply, walking in authentic solidarity with those who are the most vulnerable in our society.   

In the spirit of our Founders, and with contemplative hearts, we seek truth, promote peace, and reverence all life in the name of Jesus, who is our center and his mother Mary, who is our model.

 Consecrated for Mission

In union with Mary, Mother of Jesus, the United States Daughters of the Heart of Mary seek to foster a world rooted in and revitalized by the Word of God.

The Word is made flesh in our lives as we are

   Cooperating with God’s graces to build a world in which the primary values are dignity and justice for all people.

   Endeavoring to be a community in which each member’s God-given gifts are appreciated and nurtured.

   Working and praying for an earth protected and restored.
