The Daughters of the Most Holy Redeemer is an Association of the Congregation of the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer. Its members strive to live as apostolic hermits entirely given over to the love of Jesus, Our Most Holy Redeemer and to the salvation of souls.

As in conformity with their proper vocation the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer habitually use the liturgical books in use in 1962, applying the provision of Article 3 of the Motu proprio, Summorum Pontificum, of Pope Benedict XVI, so too do also the Daughters of the Most Holy Redeemer.

A few words about our charism.


Our charism is twofold, consisting of both Monastic and Apostolic life. These seemingly opposite lives work together in harmony like two sisters. The Mary and the Martha each enriching and drawing strength from the other. Like two sides of a coin they are different aspects of the same life.


Through the monastic life we live our union with the Mystical Body of Christ throughout the ages. We carry on and participate in the prayers and life of our monastic forebears, our Fathers in the Desert. Like them and our holy father St Alphonsus, we seek to heed the call of God to “leave the world and give thyself to Me”. To live set apart from worldly things. To pray in the desert with Our Lord and Our Blessed Mother. To grow closer and closer to our Divine Spouse and intercede for His Holy Church and the most abandoned souls.


The Apostolic life flows from the monastic life. Charity unites us in the Church with all the members of Christ’s Body throughout the world. As members of the same Body we share Christ's life and love. We have a particular calling to work amongst the most abandoned souls, those souls who due to distance, age or other circumstances find themselves in spiritual or temporal need.

Deo Gratias
