Nature and Aim of the Institute

'Our Charism'


As sisters of the Infant Jesus in England and Ireland

We are called by Christ within the Church

to follow Him

by dedicating our lives in total abandonment

and by sharing the Good News

especially with those in need.

From our shared life and prayer
in apostolic communities

we draw strength for our ministry

thus the active and contemplative life become one.


Rooted deeply

in the mystery of the incarnation,

we do all in our power

to foster the growth of all people

in the image of God,

so that each one may be formed

in the love and knowledge of Jesus Christ.


Relying on the power of the Holy Spirit,

our whole life is animated by love

which is for us the source

of disinterestedness,

humility and availability,

freedom and daring.
