Bride of the Holy Spirit, obtain for us the inestimable gift of transformation in Christ. Through the same power of the Spirit that overshadowed you, making you the Mother of the Saviour, help us to bring Christ your Son to birth in ourselves too.

An exploratory visit by two DHM was undertaken on behalf of the Province India North to Ranchi, in Jharkhand. This visit was initiated by Mr. Joseph Ekka and Fr. Rajesh Toppo, who extended to the visitors a warm welcome and an assurance of their support in future.
The invitation to the Society has been made. What remains is that the society studies the situation and responds adequately at an early date.


Adelaide is a woman of our times. Though she did not have opportunities for higher studies or other such formation as was the case of most women of her time, yet she was an experienced guide helping her sisters as well as priests who approached her to be reconciled with their sacerdotal duties and to pursue their vocation in those difficult times.
This year in 2014, we celebrate the 265th year of her birth. Let us keep her memory alive by our readiness for new directions and innovations when it is for the Greater Glory of God.

Quote of the Day 

Nothing can separate us from the love of God

Daughters of the Heart of Mary
Founded in 1790

Welcome to the website of the DHM Province-India North
You are now at the site of a religious society very different from others!
The Society of the Daughters of the Heart of Mary was founded on 19th July 1790, years ago in France during the period of turmoil of the French Revolution. It was a time when all other religious societies were suppressed and persecuted. It was a challenge to live a consecrated life at that time and the challenge continues even today.

At present the members of this Society serve the needs of the Church and all peoples through a wide variety of pastoral, social and educational services even in the most difficult times and places.

The call of a DHM is not to offer a particular work or expertise. It is a call to be a sign and a presence of the merciful love of God in all circumstances of life and work.

“Behold your Mother
Do whatever he tells you”
