Ann O'Donnell shares the story of the Institute's first years in the United States:

I was in love with the spirituality of St. Maximilian Kolbe, the total consecration to Mary. Mary had become my guide, light, comfort and Mother.  This love brought me to discover my vocation in the Fr. Kolbe Missionaries of the Immaculata, a secular institute of consecrated lay women founded in 1954 in Bologna, Italy.
