We are a female lay institute of consecrated life operating in Poland, Brazil, the USA, Italy, Lithuania and Ukraine.

We do not live together but remain in our own environments trying to change the world from the inside with our daily prayer, work, attitude and testimony. All women who feel the vocation for consecrated life, but at the same time intend to carry on living and working in the secular world, staying in touch with their families are invited to have a look at our mission and the way we live.

The vocation is a mystery sealed by God in our hearts.

As you are reading this webpage, you may ask yourself:

  • What is my vocation?
  • Where do I belong?
  • Who am I?
  • What is the sense of my life?

You may think:

  • I love this world...
  • I want to be close to people, my family, parents, sisters, brothers...
  • I feel that God invites me to a closer relationship
  • I want to work and help people while doing my regular job

Maybe your vocation is a consecrated life in a lay community - that's what members of secular institutes do.

Here are a few quotes from "Diary of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska" that may enhance the process of recognizing your vocation:

"(...) I suddenly saw Jesus at my side (...) who spoke these words to me: How long shall I put up with you and how long will you keep putting Me off? (Diary of Saint Faustina, 9)

I know your heart, and I know that it will not be satisfied by anything but My love alone. (Diary of Saint Faustina, 1023)

Thank You, O Lord, my Master, That You have transformed me entirely into Yourself, And accompany me through life’s toils and labors; I fear nothing when I have You in my heart. (Diary of Saint Faustina, 1001)

O Jesus, hidden God, My heart perceives You
Though veils hide You
You know that I love You.
(Diary of Saint Faustina, 524)

O my Jesus, how immensely I rejoice at the assurance You have given me that the Congregation will come to being. I no longer have the least shadow of a doubt about this, and I see how great is the glory which it will give to God. It will be the reflection of God’s greatest attribute; that is, His divine mercy. Unceasingly, they will intercede for divine mercy for themselves and for the whole world. And every act of mercy will flow from God’s love with which they will be filled to overflowing. They will strive to make their own this great attribute of God, and to live by it and to bring others to know it and trust in the goodness of the Lord. This Congregation of Divine Mercy will be God’s Church like a beehive in a magnificent garden, hidden and meek. The sisters will work like bees to feed their neighbors’ souls with honey, while the wax will flame for the glory of God. (Diary of Saint Faustina, 664)
