We hold very dear our charism and spirit which is embodied in the life of our Foundress, Mother Mary Charles Magdalen Walker.  She imparted to us through the Four Foundation members her strong deep faith, apostolic zeal and holy life in imitation of the abandonment to God’s will, as a spirituality of deep trust in Divine Providence.  From her we inherit an apostolic spirituality which is embedded in all-embracing charity as we strive to respond to the needs of a growing missionary Church.

From the original inspiration to the present, the spirit of the Congregation has been a steady imitation of Mary, the first Handmaid, striving to acquire her humility, simplicity, obedience and charity.  In essence of our continuous fidelity to Christ, the Church and our charism, we dedicate ourselves to continue the mission of Christ for which we have been called and consecrated.
