The community is dedicated in a particular manner to the Perpetual Virginity of Our Lady and St Joseph.
The Consecrates are to make reparation for not only the lack of belief in Our Lady's perpetual virginity, but also for the
lack of respect for the virginal state in the modern world.
Adoration is also in mind for the community.
The Novitiate will be
named Patmos Monastery, for the island on which St John spent his last years. The monastery's name is significant for
the Consecrates are to consider themselves exiled from the world.
