Crusaders of Mary

Crusaders of Mary are a Secular Institute of Pontifical Right committed with the new evangelization by pursuing the holistic education of young people. Our mission is oriented to evangelize, through an incisive presence in all the secular realities though the families, education Culture and work.

Our spirituality is born from the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius and the rich contemplative life that flows from the Carmelites. We are an “Ignatian trunk with Carmelitan sap.” in the words of Fr. Morales.

Charism

Consecrated in the world: The charism that Fr. Morales transmitted to us is characterized by seeking apostolic holiness in the midst of the world, living a spirituality of contemplation in action in imitation of Our Lady in the family of Nazareth.
