The Congregation of Mercedarian Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament was founded in Mexico City in 1910 by the Servant of God, Maria del Refugio Aguilar y Torres, who heeded God's call to reach out with courage and love to the needs of her times: a Christian education for children and youth.

Today, the Sisters continue to respond to their charism in the Church by providing children and youth with a Christian education in schools and catechetical centers. They also visit the sick and the imprisoned and assist in various parish and diocesan ministries. As consecrated women, more than 700 Sisters strive ardently in ten countries to extend their Eucharistic Mercedarian spirit of adoration and praise to Jesus in the Eucharist, and filial love and devotion to our Lady of Mercy, Mother of the Redeemer.

To fulfill the Sisters' motto, "To Evangelize with Mary in the Light of the Eucharist", applicants must have the desire for spiritual and academic improvement, love for people, especially children and youth, and must be of a healthy mind and body for service in the Lord's vineyard. The age limit for applicants is 18-35.
