The Congregation of Mary, Queen originated as the “Lovers of the Holy Cross of Bui-Chu” which was founded in Vietnam in 1670 by Bishop Pierre Lambert de la Motte. We were erected in 1953 as a religious institute of diocesan right. Jesus, the filial Son of the Father and of Mary, is our model. We learn a life of spiritual childhood and to offer ourselves to God through Mary by means of chastity, poverty, and obedience. Our life in community is balanced between prayer, work, and recreation.
Our prayer life includes daily participation in the Eucharist, the Liturgy of the Hours, meditation, spiritual reading, rosary, and personal prayer. We work in schools, childcare centers, parishes, hospitals, nursing homes, and charity centers for the poor, refugees, and immigrants.
Entrance requirements are a sincere desire to give oneself totally to God and to serve those in need, adequate physical, mental, and spiritual health, 18 years of age or older.
