Our Mission

Why the Beloved Disciple?

From the cross Jesus gave us Mary as our Mother and then Jesus "handed over the Spirit" (John 19:25-31). Like the Beloved Disciple, we take Mary into our heart and learn from her docility to the Holy Spirit. We strive to grow daily in the virtues of Jesus and Mary and we place ourselves at her service. We want to bring others to know Jesus in a personal way through the empowering love of the Holy Spirit and Marian consecration.

Brothers and Priests

"You are all brothers," Jesus said to his disciples (Matthew 23:8). All members, priests and brothers, are equally consecrated religious and seek to live and minister as one body united in the love of Jesus.

Eucharistic

In addition to celebrating the Eucharist daily, we adore Jesus regularly in His sacramental presence. "Could you not spend one hour with me?" Jesus asked his disciples. We say "yes" and treasure the time of adoration, which enriches our union with the Lord when we celebrate his sacrifice with the community of the Church.

Prayer and Action

In prayer we draw from the wellspring of God’s love that will nourish and sustain us in our evangelistic ministries. We pray hours of the Divine Office and the rosary daily and spend one hour in personal prayer every day.

Faithful to Church Teaching

The early Church was profoundly charismatic and under the authority of the Apostles, we too place ourselves under the authority of their successors and pledge fidelity to the Pope and the teaching authority of the Church.

Why a Community?

Only a community can adequately embody the message of Jesus and the transforming power of God's love. Jesus said, "Where two or three gather in my name, there I am in the midst of them" (Matt. 18:20). "By this will all people know that you are my disciples, if you love one another" (John 13:35). Disciples who work as a team multiply their effectiveness.

Why a Religious Community?

One of the charisms of the Holy Spirit is celibacy, and a celibate community reminds the church and the world "that we have not here a lasting city" (Heb 13:14), that we are already citizens of the heavenly city (Phil 3:20). And it frees us to belong totally to the Lord and his service, the service of his people.

We also have lay associates who make a Marian consecration and follow a simple Rule of Life inspired by the spirituality of the community.
