Since their first apostolate is the community, the Sisters of the Leaven of the Immaculate Heart of Mary practice charity and simplicity first in the community. The members live the youthful spirit of life, enthusiasm and energy described by Mother Mary to St. Louis Marie de Montfort.
The Sisters profess the religious vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. These vows facilitate the practice of the corresponding virtues and procure the fuller exercise of the queen of virtues - Divine Charity. As such, the vows are fittingly called, "The Wings of Love," because they bear up the soul as on wings to take flight freely and strongly towards God. Those who have been chosen to serve God in the religious life experience an abiding sense of the power, dignity, and grandeur of their sacred engagements.
