The Servants of God’s Love is a new religious community founded in 1975. Our primary call as a community is to be a sign of God’s love, both in our love for Him and in our love for His people. We pray daily in our morning prayer: “Lord, we want to be a sign and a witness today to Your people and to the world of the personal, strong love You have for Your people. We want to be a sign and a witness of the kind of love you want Your people to have for You: A love with undivided hearts, a single-hearted love and devotion to You, a fervor and zeal for You and Your life.”
We also have a fourth vow to the common life and to unity. As Fraternal Life in Community states: “All must be reminded that fraternal communion, as such, is already an apostolate; in other words, it contributes directly to the work of evangelization. The sign par excellence left us by Our Lord is that of lived fraternity: ‘By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another’ (cf. Jn 13:35).”
Our present apostolic works include caring for the elderly who are marginalized. However, our sisters are involved in many other apostolates as well, including teaching and evangelism, and wherever the Lord calls us to bring His love.
