The Children of Mary is a semi-contemplative community of Sisters forming in the diocese of Columbus (Ohio) under the guidance of Bishop Frederick Campbell. The Sisters spend time each day in humble adoration of Our Eucharistic King. We chant the Liturgy of the Hours (in English) and attend daily Mass. We serve our neighbor by praying and sacrificing for all of our brothers and sisters throughout the world, begging God to give grace to all to come to love and adore Him in the Most Holy Eucharist. Living simply and prayerfully, we seek ever deeper union with God. Each Sister spends part of each day in community prayer, work, recreation, adoration, and solitude, alone with God, in order to make ourselves available to God for the gift of contemplation, which deepens our love and increases our virtue. After preparation, each Sister consecrates her life to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary and makes an act of abandonment to God’s loving, divine Providence.
The Sisters study the Faith so as to grow in love and appreciation for the gift of Faith, and also in order to be able to share the Faith with those who come in search of truth. Gently, humbly, we wish to share with everyone the beauty of the Catholic Faith and the astounding reality that God is with us in the Holy Eucharist. We pray for a greater awareness and appreciation of God’s Presence with us in the Holy Eucharist so that the natural consequences of such understanding – reverence and adoration, will blossom throughout the world.
