CHARISME & SPIRITUALITY
A LIFE DEDICATED TO YOUTH
What I long for, my Lord,
is to work tirelessly so that
These young women live well
and receive salvation.
Saint Vicenta Maria
Religious of Mary Immaculate
The Congregation of Religious Mary Immaculate, founded in 1876 in Spain by Saint Vincenta Maria López y Vicuña, wishes to provide every young woman the opportunity to grow as a person but also spiritually, by developing and aiming their abilities towards Wisdom, according to a Christian way of life.
Accross the world
In Europe and on other continents, they are a reference for the youth, especially through:
– The HOSTEL for students and young professionals, where these can find a real home from home, a warm and safe place, a welcoming and family atmosphere conducive to friendship, joy and development;
– The SOCIAL CENTRE, which connects families who need help at home (caring for children or the elderly, housework, etc…) and the candidates who are seeking such work.
Our apostolate is geared towards the holistic education and evangelisation of young women, through encountering, welcoming, listening to and guiding (in the hostels, social centres, day centres, professional schools, missions, summer camps…).
More than mere accommodation, these offer a warm and family atmosphere in an environment that is not only Christian but also convivial and conducive to studying.
We welcome and follow young women aged 17-30 years old who find themselves far from their families or their countries of origin (for their studies, their work or to find a better future) and we help them through a full hospitality service.
In the south of Italy, members of MOLAVIM carry out a specific mission among the youth, introducing them to the joy of the Gospel and giving them a sense of the common good.
We provide a bridge between families who may have domestic help needs for the elderly, childminding etc… and women or young women who are seeking work in this sector.
