“Family of Jesus, Healer” (a private association of the faithful), striving to live in imitation of Mary of Nazareth, by creating and keeping a home so to be a cenacle of grace and prayer and a refuge for others.
We are formed to be spiritual mothers for our family community and especially for the poor. This includes recovering the dignity and innocence of womanhood and growing in an authentic femininity through modesty, inner healing, and imitating Mary’s motherhood particularly through listening and being present to the other.
We believe our gift to the Church simple duties of everyday family life, giving value to the domestic and ordinary as Mary did for thirty years in Nazareth. We wish to serve our brothers, priests and neighbors as Mary would have served and tended to Jesus, the Apostles and friends with time and devotion.
