OBLATE SISTERS OF THE MOST HOLY EUCHARIST
EUCHARISTIC — CONTEMPLATIVE — APOSTOLIC
Our Charism is to become more like Jesus, priest and victim, Who in the Eucharist offers Himself to the Father for the salvation of the world.
Daily, we adore Jesus present in the Most Holy Eucharist exposed on the altar in our convent chapels.
Founded in 1945 in Mexico City by Servant of God Mother M. Auxilia de la Cruz: “You must surrender totally to the Holy Spirit so that He may transform you into Jesus, and specifically into Jesus-Eucharist, into Jesus the Victim” (from the writings of Mother M. Auxilia de la Cruz)
The community received spiritual and material support from the Servant of God Archbishop Luis María Martínez. With permission of the Holy See, the Servant of God approved the Institute as a religious congregation of diocesan right on November 15, 1954.
Through our works and our life of prayer and contemplation, we witness to God’s unfathomable, merciful love.
Our apostolic works include:
Daily prayer for the Church and for priests
Personal Eucharistic Adoration and the Promotion of Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration
Catechesis of children and adults.
Formation of Catechists
Individual and group retreats in our convent
“How beautiful and pleasing to the Most Blessed Trinity is the Oblate who follows the inspirations of the Holy Spirit and lives in its plentitude this sublime Eucharistic and priestly program of Christian life, adding to it with love her religious obligations as pointed out to her by her Constitutions.” Mother M. Auxilia de la Cruz
