An international community of women, dedicated to the life-giving SPIRIT, called and sent, in mission for mission, to make know the saving LOVE of the TRIUNE GOD to all people. Anchored in the Trinitarian Spirituality, nourished by the word of God and Eucharist, guided by the Spirit discernment, we are sent as prophetic missionary communities beyond barriers of languages culture and social classes in order to reveal the feminine face of the Triune God
