The Daughters of Mary, Mother of Our Savior is a congregation of traditional Catholic Sisters. The Congregation was founded in the summer of 1984. The mother-house, St. Joseph's Novitiate, is located in upstate New York. Here, at St. Joseph's Novitiate, candidates for the Religious life aspiring to become Daughters of Mary receive their training and spiritual formation.
In the summer of 1984, the Congregation of the Daughters of Mary, Mother of Our Savior was founded. For a Novitiate and Motherhouse, 14 acres of property in the Catskill Mountains were acquired. The Novitiate was named after St. Joseph, to whom it seemed quite fitting to entrust the care of the Daughters of Mary. St. Teresa of Avila also named her first foundation of the reformed Carmelites in St. Joseph's honor. With this great saint as protector and intercessor, St. Joseph's Novitiate opened its doors in the summer of 1984. The little community of the Daughters of Mary began with three Novices and seven Postulants. Over the past three and a half decades, the Congregation has grown steadily. As of 2016, the Daughters of Mary has 68 members in four different religious houses.
