We are together, we are one big family: sisters, Associates, Marie Rivier fraternities, consecrated laity, children, youth, our families. Inspired by the example of the Virgin Mary and Marie Rivier, we learn to walk in the presence of God, to live in the ordinary of our daily lives the: All For God! All through love! Being together is for us the strength of hope, a richness of faith and love.
The apostolic spirituality of Blessed Marie river nourished the life of prayer and action of many baptized persons. We willingly share with them the richness of our spiritual heritage.
Charity impels us to reveal to those who question us
the reason for the hope which dwells within us.
MARIE RIVIER ASSOCIATES
The lay associates are a living reality everywhere. We know that the Associates are an integral part of our religious family. They are committed to living a deeper life of prayer, to giving their time to Eucharistic adoration, to listening to and sharing the Word of God. They feel called to commit themselves more and more to our apostolic mission, at the service of the Church and in the world, in order to make Jesus Christ, the Virgin Mary and our Blessed Foundress known and loved.
LAY CONSECRATED PERSONS
Lay consecrated persons are present in five of our Provinces, Regions, Missions: Cameroon, United States, Mozambique, Peru, Quebec. Their formation and the deepening of their vow helps them to live their commitment with dynamism. Like Marie Rivier, they want to witness their love for Jesus Christ, their desire to make him known and loved in their milieu of life. The love for Jesus Christ fills our hearts. They live according to the spirituality of the Congregation. Most of them are involved in parish work, catechesis, visits to the elderly or sick….
