The Servants of Mary (also known as Servites) is a Catholic community of women religious and lay associates called to bring the compassionate presence of God, in the spirit of Mary, to all those whom we meet and with whom we minister.
We belong to an international community, the Order of Servants of Mary (OSM). Our Motherhouse (Our Lady of Sorrows Convent) is located in Omaha, NE. We have members across the country and around the world. Together, we are committed to a life rooted in prayer, community, and service.
The mission of the Servants of Mary is to manifest God’s compassionate presence in the spirit of Mary. We respond to the words of Jesus: “Be compassionate as your God is compassionate.” We do so by following the example of Jesus, under the guidance of Mary.
Our commitment to compassion calls us to:
- witness Gospel values
- center our lives in love of God and neighbor through prayer, community, and service
- share with others healing and hope
- be in right-relationship with all creation
- welcome others in a spirit of hospitality
- live joyfully our charism of compassionate presence
