The Sisters of CMRI (Marian Sisters)
The Sisters of Mary Immaculate Queen are a traditional Catholic Religious Congregation dedicated to preserving and spreading the true Faith and promoting the message of Our Lady of Fatima. The Congregation was founded in order to provide women with an opportunity to strive for personal holiness through the observance of the simple vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, along with obedient observance of the Constitution and Rules of the Congregation. Their Marian spirit is evidenced by their full-length blue habits, complete with Rosary and Miraculous Medal, while their spirituality is based on Total Consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary as taught by St. Louis Marie de Montfort.
The apostolates of the Marian Sisters include teaching and parish work as well as promotion of Catholic publications. The Sisters staff a K-12 Catholic academy, a print shop, and a religious book store and mail order center in Spokane, Washington, as well as small schools in other parts of the country. In 1979, the Sisters also began making musical recordings as the “Singing Nuns,” a work which has proved to be a mission as well as a means of financial support. In all these ways, the Marian Sisters fulfill their end and purpose: the glory of God and the salvation of souls.
