The Marian Sisters were established during the Marian Year, 1954, by Sister Marta Silna and Sister Theresa Gottvald, two Mercy Sisters of St. Francis from Czechoslovakia. The community’s charism is joy and simplicity, flowing from a Marian spirituality and a Franciscan heritage. Apostolic works include teaching, special education, catechetical work, health care, and social work.
Marycrest Motherhouse, the sisters’ headquarters and formation house, is located in a rural setting near Lincoln, Nebraska. They also have four mission houses throughout the diocese. The sisters live community life with a balance of prayer, work, and recreation. Their prayer life includes daily participation in the celebration of the Eucharist, the Liturgy of the Hours, meditation, rosary, spiritual reading, stations of the cross, and private devotion.
Those seeking entrance must have a sincere desire to do God’s will in all things with great love, accompanied by good physical, mental, and spiritual health.
