Sisters of Mary Reparatrix Congregation
The Sisters of Mary Reparatrix is an international congregation of Catholic vowed women religious who welcome lay associates as friends and partners in ministry.
It was in 1854 that their foundress, Emilie d'Oultremont d'Hooghvorst, was inspired to begin the congregation.
Today, now in 22 countries, the sisters strive to help people realize God's tender love for them and help them respond to that love. In companionship with others, the sisters promote reconciliation wherever individuals feels separated from God, from one another, from themselves and from the earth. They seek to manifest the healing and reconciling love of God trough prayer, community living and service.
The same spirit that animated Mary, the Mother of Jesus, urges the sisters to live and proclaim justice, peace, the equality of all persons and the integrity of creation. While they place their trust and hope in God, they are called to love this world with the sensitivity, strength and tenderness of the heart of a woman.
