From our founding mission in Holy Trinity, Alabama, our priests and Brothers have dedicated their lives to the “tangled portion” of God’s vineyard in America.
Today, Missionary Servant priests and Brothers compassionately respond to the cry of the poor and those who are suffering in the following States: Alabama, Arizona, California, Georgia, Maryland, Mississippi, and New Jersey.
We continually challenge ourselves to live our commitment of service to the poor by working with those who live on the fringes and margins of society due to race, immigration status, addictions, gender, and other prejudices; and those lacking essentials such as education, housing, food, and security.
Our priests and Brothers seek to glorify God through our ministries in parishes and prison ministry, as hospital chaplains, working with troubled youth, and programs for recovering alcoholics and addicts. We serve in isolated rural towns, in the heart of the inner cities, on Native American reservations, and among the newly arrived in this country.
The Missionary Servants are serving in communities that have no one to listen, no one to care, and no one to hold a hand in times of sorrow. We have not turned our back on these communities—we stand tall with them every day, every hour, and with everything we have in ourselves to give. We empty ourselves in the name of God so that others may have a chance for a better life.
