Christ’s call to love his people is not just a call for some, but a call for all; it is not a hope for tomorrow, but a mission for today. The Daughters of Divine Love, impelled by the gospel of Christ and the mission of our founder, are called to a courageous response to Divine Love Incarnate in contemplation, harmonious community living, and apostolic action made visible in selfless liberating service to the entire creation.
The member pronounce the public vows of Chastity, Poverty and Obedience, and dedicate themselves to contemplation and apostolic work. The Congregation, recognized by their blue veil, is uniquely joyful in our service because we've experienced God's love ourselves in our lives. We believe that it is of the utmost importance that we commit to the communities which we serve for the long term.
The Daughters of Divine Love Congregation, a Pontifical and International order of religious women founded by Bishop Godfrey Mary Paul Okoye, CSSP, on July 16, 1969 in Nigeria, during the agonizing and ravaging Nigeria-Biafra war. By God’s mercy this mustard seed, DDL, has grown into a big tree and today we have over 900 sisters ministering in 15 countries around the world.
