As part of the group's mission of social justice, there has been controversies with the affiliations of the members of the order. BVM Sisters have been involved with the Women's Ordination Conference, a group that esposes the Ordination of women as priests despite the matter being declared closed by the Vatican. BVM Sisters have also been involved in active civil disobedience against the 2003 war on Iraq. In 1993, one of the BVM Sisters, who had since died, was accused of molestation.
