Helping Jesus and Mary Save Souls

We are a contemplative community of religious priests, sisters, brothers and lay members, that serve the Hearts of Jesus and Mary through contemplation, Eucharistic adoration, and works of mercy and compassion. Through prayer, adoration and works of mercy we promote peace, love, devotion to God and mercy for all.

Established in 1997 in Hopedale, Ohio (30 minutes from the Franciscan University of Steubenville), the Order is a private association of the faithful in the Diocese of Steubenville, Ohio.
