DHM missionCalled to religious life by the Trinity, The Daughters of the Heart of Mary (DHM) continue the mission of the Son. Our consecrated lives are mission, as the whole life of Jesus was mission.

Each DHM is called to the joy and responsibility of being a witness to the Risen Christ and to the liberating power of his Gospel in an often chaotic and troubled world. We are open to and wholly available to the needs of the times and the places in which we serve God’s people, responding to them according to our gifts and abilities.

We are called to take care to protect life and promote integral human development, thus committed to contributing to the changing of mentalities and attitudes to build with others a more just and humane world in which the dignity and rights of all are respected.

We recognize Creation as a gift from God. Faced with its global deterioration, we are called to live an ecological conversion to safeguard it and not transform it into an object of consumption and domination.



Our Mission

The Society accommodates the continuation of religious life under all circumstances and in each milieu where a Daughter of the Heart of Mary is sent on mission. Wherever we may be, and in all circumstances, we are called to witness to the Risen Christ and to the liberating power of his Gospel.

Our Vision

The Daughters of the Heart of Mary are twenty-first century ecclesial women of many nations and cultures alive with the gifts of the Spirit. Following the example of the original Christian communities, our spirituality is rooted in Sacred Scripture and is exemplified in lives and ministries strengthened by communal prayer and spiritual sharing...READ MORE
