The mission of the Daughters of Mary guides and directs the hour of prayer and discussion.

  • Prayer: Spiritual formation in the Marian tradition
  • Reflection: Insight into the meaning of the Gospel for contemporary women
  • Renewal: Creating a culture of faith for family, Church and community.

The Daughters of Mary welcomes all women who seek a closer relationship with Christ—
We invite any woman who hopes to prayerfully bond with other women.

The Daughters of Mary hour of prayer is a repetitive exercise that affects spiritual formation—forming a community of faithful, prayerful, insightful women, who impart Gospel values to those with whom they live and work. We meet once a week for an hour. The focus of the time of prayer is the Gospel for the upcoming Sunday. Prayers are adapted from the “Magnificat,” and are Marian centered. The time of prayer also includes a spiritual instruction in prayer and discernment (often taken from the Ignatian tradition). All DoM prayer handouts are available for DoM Facilitator use.
