The Congregation of Poor Clare Missionary Sisters was founded by the Servant of God Mother Maria Ines Teresa Arias in Cuernavaca, Mexico in 1945 and received pontifical approval in June 1951. The charism of the congregation is missionary, and the spirit is Eucharistic, priestly, and Marian, having as its base adherence to the Divine Will, which is a fountain of joy.

Their charism is centered in Jesus Christ in the Most Blessed Sacrament, the guide, love and strength in their life of contemplation and action. Our Lady of Guadalupe is the patroness of their congregation. Apostolates include missionary activities in Christian and non-Christian countries, pastoral and catechetical work, health care, education of children and young people, retreat houses and boarding homes, and the formation and promotion of lay missionary vanguards. They fulfill their apostolic vocation in fourteen countries around the world
