Missionary Servants’ charism is to serve ‘entangled portion of vineyard’

WASHINGTON (CNS) — A U.S.-founded religious order dedicated to serving the spiritually abandoned and empowering the laity, the Missionary Servants of the Most Holy Trinity, turned 100 this year.

In the early 1900s, Father Thomas Augustine Judge, born to Irish immigrants in Boston, traveled on the “mission band” for the Vincentians and began to energize laypeople “around being missionaries in their everyday life,” said Father Michael Barth, general custodian for the Missionary Servants, also called Trinity Missions.

“He really believed that the laity were the key” and was concerned with what he called “the leakage” of the poor immigrants in the church, said Father Barth.
