Our founding charism and how it is lived today.
God in His providence
brought about our religious family of the Little Servant Sisters of the Immaculate Conception through an outstanding celibate lay apostle, Blessed Edmund Bojanowski, on May 3, 1850 in Poland. Led by the light of the Gospel and the mind of the Church, furthermore motivated by Christian love he acted directly in the temporal sphere as a forerunner, almost one hundred years before, of the theme of Vatican Council II on the renewal of the temporal order by the laity Thanks to his sensitivity and openness to the needs of the human person, particularly the defenseless and the most needy - the child, the sick and the poor - he knew how to read the times and respond generously to them.
Inspired by Christ,
"In so far as you have done this to one of the least of these my brothers, you have done it to me" (Matthew 25:40) Blessed Edmund became a father to orphans and a servant to the poor and the sick. He also organized libraries and established daycare and preschool centers. With confidence and zeal he was able to inspire and encourage young women to the service of love, and founded our Congregation of the Little Servant Sisters of the Immaculate Conception on May 3, 1850.
As the model of life and action,
Blessed Edmund set before the members Mary Immaculate, who at God's call responded generously, "I am the handmaid of the Lord, let what you have said be done to me" (Luke 1:38)-and initiated also a splendid service for the whole of humanity, a service extended to all generations.
Having been called
to a life consecrated to God in our Congregation of the Little Servant Sisters of the Immaculate Conception and grateful for the grace of the religious vocation, we are determined to fulfill faithfully the mission which God has assigned us in the Church through our Father Founder.
Our founding charism is a gift of grace
freely given by God for strengthening and building up the Church. Therefore in our Congregation we are motivated by our Founder’s charism in our spirituality and apostolate with the constant need for fidelity to our founding charism and subsequent spiritual tradition.
Throughout the world our Sisters realize the charism of service.
In keeping with Blessed Edmund’s spirit and aim, we live our founding charism out of love for God loved most of all and with Christ as our model in the service of our neighbor most in need of help, spiritual and material, especially children, the poor and the sick. As its distinctive works our Congregation undertakes: the Christian upbringing and education of children and youth, catechesis, charitable activity among the poor and the sick and also other forms of apostolic work, according to the original spirit and the current needs of the Church.
For the growth of the kingdom of God and the benefit of the neighbors, our Sisters give occasion not only by word, prayer and apostolic activity, but also give witness to Christ by personal example.
