Since their foundation in Chiavari, Italy, on January 29, 1829, the Daughters of Our Lady of the Garden have been spreading their charism of evangelical vigilant charity suggested by their founder, Bishop St. Anthony Gianelli.
They carry out their apostolate in Italy, Spain, Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, Bolivia, Brazil, India, the Democratic Republic of Congo, the United States and Papua New Guinea.
The sisters cultivate a profound devotion to the Eucharist and a great love to the Blessed Virgin Mary who is their mother and model. They live a simple and prayerful life open to God and the needs of their brothers and sisters in schools, hospital, social services, missions as well as in parish and youth ministries.
Interested women ages 18 to 45 with good physical, psychological, moral, and mental health who want to live community life, participate in the daily Mass, prayer, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and experience the joy of a life dedicated to God and to the service of others are welcome.
