Mission
The Sisters are a community called to a life of contemplative prayer, directed in a special way to the great love which Jesus showed to all mankind in the shedding of His Precious Blood. One essential characteristic of their way of life is joy, since a vocation of love and reparation is a cause of joy to the whole world, reminding all believers of the presence of that blessing we already possess here on earth. Their ministry in the Church is to adore Jesus Christ in His Most Precious Blood; to draw life and strength daily from the Eucharistic Sacrifice, which allows them to "put on Christ"; to pray for the salvation of souls; for the Church; for the holiness of priests; for peace in the world; for the Holy Souls in Purgatory; for civic leaders and social justice; for all who ask the Sisters' prayers. As Reparatrices, the Sisters offer reparation to Jesus for: the sins of the world, blasphemies against God, loss of moral and spiritual values, abortions and euthanasia. Being Daughters of Mary Immaculate, the Sisters wear a white habit, in Her honor, beneath their red scapular.
