The Servants of Mary are hanging banners around the Motherhouse/Marian campus to highlight twelve of the ministries that best represent the Servants of Mary. We will be highlighting them throughout the year. The first ministry that we are highlighting is Education. 


St. Peregrine, a Servant of Mary Saint, was born in Flori, Italy in 1265.  Peregrine became a Servite friar and began a life-long journey of prayer and service (the name Peregrine means pilgrim).  Because St. Peregrine suffered from cancer, the Church has designated Peregrine Laziosi the patron of those suffering from cancer and other life-threatening diseases.  He was canonized in 1726 and his feast day is May 4th.

The Servants of Mary (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.
