Esto Femina – Esto Femina is, first and foremost, a university household for women. The main focus is promoting Catholic womanly virtue, regardless of particular vocation, and instilling an ever-present attention to our coming spousal relationship with Christ. As Mary is the purest representation of true femininity, the sisters of Esto Femina will, of course, seek to emulate her. The Esto Femina plan for life works to counteract cultural trends that demoralize woman, by instead emphasizing: purity, chastity, modesty and prayer. In order to fulfill these ojectives, Esto Femina emphasizes the following seven virtues (In honor of the “Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Virgin Mary”): Sisterhood, Prayer, Chastity in union with Modesty, Charity, Patience, Piety, and Self-Sacrifice. By way of these virtues, the sisters of Esto Femina will help one another to reflect the true character of Catholic women and act as daughters of Christ. While Esto Femina acts as a cohesive and supportive sisterhood, it is still a responsibility of each sister to personally pursue the attainment of such character in a committed fashion.
