We are a group of women who have come together from diverse paths and from different backgrounds: family, culture, interests, and age; yet, one thing brings us together: we desire to follow Jesus in response to a call which changed our lives and continues transforming our way of understanding the whole of reality.

 

OUR IDENTIFYING SIGNS 

Original Insignia of the Hijas de Jesus

"IHS" are the first three letters of the name of Jesus in Greek: Iota, Eta, Sigma: It could also mean "Iesu Humanum Salvatore" (Jesus, Savior of Mankind). The IHS is the identifying mark of the Hijas de Jesus found in their ring and in their necklace.

OUR RELIGIOUS FAMILY

Our religious family feels especially called to live the filial attitude towards God as Father, characterized by the trust, the security in his unconditional love, and praise for Him. This face of God that we contemplate invites us to live in fraternity with all, in gratuitousness, simplicity and joy.
 

 MARY, STAR OF OUR WAY

Mary

 

Mary occupies a special place in our faith life. She is for us a Mother, a companion, the Star that guides our way, the believer who proclaims the wonderful works of the Lord manifested in the poor and simple, the disciple who teaches us how to live our daily following of Jesus.
 
 

 

 



THE BODY-CONGREGATION

The Congregation, as a Body, which is
spread out to the different places in the world for the mission, exists and maintains its aliveness in every local community of the Hijas de Jesús called precisely for the mission in its multiple forms.
 

 THE LOCAL COMMUNITY

DSC00425The local community is the place which God offers to us as a gift in order to live concretely the experiences which we have just described. It is a space where we share, pray, renew our response to the call and the common mission, where our contemplation of the daily happenings and experience of mutual help replenish our strengths. It is at the same time a house open to whoever comes to have some moments of prayer, conversation, search-ins, or simply for some relaxation.
