Stella Maris – The mission of Stella Maris encourages all household sisters to strive to be virtuous examples of true femininity while promoting our womanly vocation as a “sincere gift of self,” and having this vocation then be “actualized” in the many vocations which our present life entails. With the guidance of the Total Consecration to Jesus and imitation of the Blessed Mother, we will attain the virtues needed to faithfully dedicate our lives to and live each day for Our Lord. Our many academic, social, moral, and spiritual responsibilities must be balanced so as to successfully live our vocations as students, friends, daughters, sisters, and most importantly, women of God. Whether called to marriage or religious life, the sisters of Stella Maris seek to support one another as we strive to faithfully live out each of our different callings in life. While embracing each other’s differences, our sisterhood is unified through our striving for the virtues of dignity, purity, and moderation – those virtues which Our Lady so perfectly exemplified. As a sisterhood, we depend upon each other while not only keeping one another accountable to our individual standards, but also to a high moral expectation of living.
