Founded in 1992 by Rev. Mother Lillie and erected a religious institutes of diocesan right by His Eminence Juan Cardinal Sandoval of the Archdiocese of Guadalajara in 2010, the Trinitarians of Mary are a monastic congregation of contemplative life dedicated to Eucharistic adoration and Marian devotion.

Through a life of prayer and penance the Trinitarians of Mary support the Catholic priesthood and the Church, opening their doors to all through monastic hospitality and retreats.

One particular expression of their contemplative vocation is rooted in the practice of perpetual Eucharistic Adoration and is their way of continuing in the Church the presence and work of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The personal prayer of each sister is marked by the hours she spends at Our Lord’s feet in solitary adoration before the Blessed Sacrament exposed. It gives meaning to her religious consecration. By their filial devotion to Mary, members desire to bring about the triumph of her Immaculate Heart by seeking to make her known and loved by all who come in contact with them.

The monasteries of the Trinitarians are not autonomous but inter-dependent in nature and form part of a monastic congregation with a centralized government under the leadership of the prioress general. Likewise, sisters may be transferred from one monastery to another according to the needs of the community.
