Sancta Familia Apostolate was founded as a joint effort between the Children of Mary Sisters and the Baker family. Sancta Familia Apostolate is engaged in the building of beautiful liturgical furnishings with the hope of assisting the faithful in the reverent celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
It was the Real Presence of Our Lord in the Eucharist that definitively drew us into the Catholic Church. It is our privilege now to spend our lives adoring Him, receiving Him daily in Holy Communion, and building liturgical furnishings that will help others to adore Him and receive Him with love and reverence. It is our hope that by building something beautiful for the liturgy, people will be helped to understand the miracle of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. He has given all for us. He has given all to us. The only proper response is to give Him everything in return.
Please pray for the success of our work – that our liturgical woodworking may inspire people to a deeper love and reverence for Our Eucharistic Lord.
We do our best to share – in a mitigated way – in the Children of Mary Sisters’ way of life including their vows. As lay people in the matrimonial state, we cannot make the vows exactly as the Sisters do, so we make promises of holy simplicity, chastity according to our state in life, obedience to the Catholic Church, to pray for priests and to give our lives to quench the Thirst of Jesus to be loved in the Most Blessed Sacrament.
