We, the Sisters of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus are a Religious Institute of educated African Women who dedicate themselves to devotion to the Eucharist. We translate this devotion into love in action and empower others to spread the love of God. We commit ourselves to the service of humanity through a life of dedication and self-sacrifice. Through our missionary zeal we respond to new needs and call within the Church and spread the word of God to all with whom we come in contact.
We devote ourselves to the daily adoration of the Eucharist, making sacrifices and reparation for sins. By sharing in the sentiments of Christ – love – when He gave us the Eucharist, we reach out to all classes of people through our various apostolates.
We commit ourselves to:
Life in common is an essential element of the vowed religious life. As a family united in the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus and the Heart of the Church, the community is, by its nature, the place where the experience of God should be able, in a special way, to come to fullness and be communicated to others. For us, our life in community is a means of achieving holiness, a means through which we strive for intimate union with God, each Sister supporting the other for our own holiness, for the good of the Body of Christ and for the well being of the world. It is a lived experience of togetherness, not only by living in close proximity with each other but also by becoming part of the very fabric of each other’s lives.
