Daughters of Mary

Mission Statement

“In the spirit of Mary our Mother, we strive to be attentive to the spiritual and corporal needs of our pastor, parish, and community through service and prayer”

Upcoming Events

Now recruiting new members for our 2022-2023 prayer year!

Each member commits to a Holy Hour on a distinct day of the week, thus covering a complete week. The commitment is to that day; the Seven Sister may pray at any time on that day. If she is unable to offer her Holy Hour, she is to secure a substitute either through the leader “Anchoress” or her spouse may be her substitute for that hour.  This generous commitment of one hour per week of prayer is asked for a period of one year.  The Holy Hour is ideally prayed in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament – either in an Adoration Chapel or in front of a Tabernacle – but not restricted to the parish of which the Seven Sister is a member.  Thus, one can remain faithful to the commitment when traveling, when a parish does not offer Perpetual Adoration, or when there is limited access to a particular church.  In the absence of an open parish or Perpetual Adoration Chapel, one may park their vehicle in the parking lot of a parish to pray, ideally closest to where to Tabernacle is.   St. Columban can be opened for prayer upon request during office hours Monday – Thursday from 9:00AM to 2:00PM.

If you are interested in participating, please email to daughtersofmary@saintcolumbanyelm.org.

Each month letters and notes of encouragement are collected and delivered to the residents at Rosemont Retirement Home and East Haven Villa here in Yelm.

Help us spread God’s love to the most vulnerable and isolated in our community!

Drop off completed cards in the bin in the Narthex.  Please be sure to bundle cards which are the same, so residents don’t receive two of the same design when they are sorted.

Join us on Flocknote for the latest updates and/or changes to group activities.
