Having experienced the benevolent love of God and being conscious of their total dependence on Him, like Mary, they surrender themselves completely to the Holy Spirit, and they consecrate themselves to God through religious vows in total abandonment to His will.

In the School of St. Francis de Sales they follow Jesus, meek and humble, participating in His redemptive love unto the cross.

Urged by the same love, with Mary they are sent to participate in the universal mission of the Church.  Through a simple and joyous life permeated with a deep family spirit, they take the Gospel to the poor, especially women, that they in turn may become apostles.
