Vocation in Divine Grace Medical Missionaries
Our Lady of Divine Grace Pray for us
Mission: To empower, educate, and to guide people. Serve and not to be served through simple and demanding mission.
Charism: Humble service to the poor, sick, and needy
Tradition: Tradition has handed down to us by the story of how it was the Divine Mercy himself who gave the Foundress of DGMM this distinctive mission. He appeared to our Foundress, Sr. Mary Edith, when in mission she was home after her midday time prayer. He was dressed in the long-colored tunic, and showed her the mother wearing a medal, and he asked Sr. Mary Edith to find a community that would serve his people through Humble Service to the Poor of this generation..
Apostolate: Medical, Education, Health and Human Services.
Dedication: Nowadays, when the world is all about materialism and success, having someone who can give you direction in your everyday life seems very important. The religious vocation invites us to publicly dedicate ourselves to a life of service to others through vowed commitment to God. Religious vocation is still a personal and distinct invitation from God; the response, while still personal, offers our individual talents to be used for the benefit of others as our way to serve God.
Service: We offer ourselves to a life of service in religious vocation through a public vow. This public statement is formalized by the making of the vows of poverty, chastity, obedience, and Sozien—solemn commitments to live a celibate life focused solely on God’s will and detached from the accumulation of material wealth. DGMM sisters are publicly signs of dedicated life of service to God and humanity through our religious vocation which may be seen in the wearing of a veil, a simple habit, a symbol of our congregation in a pendant Medal.
DGMM Community Life Style:
Our Community must follow the Divine Master, the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, and the early Apostles: Simple, joyous, lovely, and smiling life, compassionate, acceptance, we must always be in two or more, no-one sister alone on the road or work, all we have is one, no personal thing. The gift you give is yourself. Give generously. We must Learn, take/follow direction, and be obedient. We enjoy praying, eating, and working together. Every community must be self-sufficient to carry-out mission. All gift and donations must be for the community use not for any sister or individual. DGMM will never accept the “my family is supporting me” for those living in the community without any evidence. This can only be when the fund is sent directly to the community fund. All sisters must be treated equal without exemption.

Signs of a Religious Vocation
A desire to have a religious vocation, together with the impression that God is calling one to His service. This desire is most strongly felt when the soul is calm. A growing attraction for prayer and holy things in general, together with a longing for a hidden life and a desire to be more closely united with God.
It is sometimes the sign of a vocation when a person fears that God may be calling her; when she prays not to have it and cannot banish the thought from her mind. If the vocation is sound, it will eventually give place to attraction. Though St. Thomas explains that one need not have a natural inclination for the religious life; on the contrary, a Divine vocation is suitable with a natural distaste for that state.
