The Mercedarian Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament were founded in 1910 in Mexico City by the Venerable Maria del Refugio Aguilar. Our mother foundress wanted us to live a life of union with Jesus within an active life. Our life is centered around the Eucharistic presence of Jesus and under the maternal protection of Our Lady of Mercy. We are called to offer our lives in oblation to God and to become Eucharist for one another, therefore, we participate in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass every day, spend daily time in silent adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, pray the divine office and the holy Rosary. We have a conventual lifestyle.
We are faithful daughters of the Church who strive to spread the love of Jesus in the Eucharist around the world, especially among children and youth through education, youth ministry and missions. At present, we have close to 600 sisters serving in 83 schools and missions in 12 countries.
Applicants should be between the ages of 18 and 35, be in good physical and mental health, and have a great desire to love God’s people, especially children and youth.
