The vocation to be part of the Congregation is a personal call from God, received and discerned in the Church through the mediation of the Congregation. It is directed to clarify a commitment to serve and live as missionaries in a Claretian community.
One of the characteristics of our life is the special dedication to the Heart of Mary. It was given to our Founder St. Anthony Mary Claret and expressed and extended his spiritual experience. Our Marian spirituality is the foundation of our Missionary service in the Church. The Holy Spirit renews in us the missionary Sending of the Son from the Father. The presence of the Heart of Mary gives our ministry a sign of humility, gentleness, tenderness and maternal love.
