The Leaven of the Immaculate Heart of Mary is a female religious institute of consecrated life. The members, while living together in common to follow Christ and striving for the perfection of charity, endeavor to contribute for the sanctification of mankind by working for the conversion of the broken families, youth, and their parish. By praying, sacrificing, and atoning for their sins, they work for the glory of Jesus Christ and the honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The main charisms are victimhood, Eucharistic centeredness, and Marian charismatic. The apostolate includes house-to-house enthronements to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, First Friday/First Saturday Communion of Reparation Vigils, Mary Help of Christians Crusade youth groups, daycare, and distance online home education.
