The Fraternas, called by Him,

Sent to different cultures

to proclaim the Good News

The Fraterna Vocation

Consecrated women

We consecrate our lives to God in response to the divine call. Following Jesus more closely and assuming the evangelical counsels are for us a path of love for One who loved us first.

Evangelizing in the midst of the world

In a spirit of generosity and availability, we want to put our whole lives at the service of evangelization. We are sent to different cultures and places to proclaim the Good News, and to live and promote authentic community.

Living in community

Like the first disciples, we walk together in faith, hope and love, living as sisters under the protection of our Mother Mary and in a spirit of family, thus discovering the gift of joy that the Lord has given us.

You have not chosen me,

Jn 15: 16

Our Name

Marian

It is a blessing to have the Mother of God present in our name. Who better than she to guide us in our path of consecration? By responding to the invitation that Jesus makes to us from the Cross, “Behold, your mother!” (Jn 19: 27) we receive our mother Mary into our lives and communities. We place our vocation in her hands, trusting in her intercession and maternal love, and we want to follow her loving example at the Annunciation and at the foot of the Cross.

Community

Community life is an important part of the Fraterna vocation. It is where we learn to love as the Lord has loved us and where we share with joy and simplicity our daily lives and mission. We strive to be a support for each other, and we want our lives and apostolic actions, with their blessings as well as their difficulties, to bear witness to authentic community.

of Reconciliation

In union with the mystery of the Cross, we gratefully welcome the gift of reconciliation that Christ, in healing the wounds of humanity, has won for us. We want to bear witness to this gift and invite others to welcome it, and in this way to be instruments of the merciful love of God who makes all things new.

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;

His steadfast love endures forever.

(Ps 136: 1)
