Traditional Religious Life

slaves life2The Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is a Religious Order comprised of Brothers and Sisters who live in separate communities practicing Total Consecration to Mary in True Devotion.

They pronounce the three traditional vows of religious life: Poverty, Chastity and Obedience; along with a fourth vow to promote the doctrines of the Church. The traditional Latin Tridentine Mass is offered daily in Immaculate Heart of Mary Chapel, and is the center of their spirituality.

The Liturgical Year is the heartbeat of their daily lives as they pray and work, meditate and observe the Great Silence. Every day the complete rosary is recited– two sets of mysteries are said publicly and one privately. These are the chains of love binding them to our Blessed Mother.

Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament and Gregorian Chant are intrinsic to the praises of God which include Vespers and Compline on Sundays sung antiphonally in IHM Chapel. The Sisters also sing Compline from the Little Office of Our Lady every night in the Convent Chapel.
