If you were part of the traditions of Servite priests and sisters at St. John Berchman's, St. Juliana's, or Servite High in Detroit, please reconnect with them for two Lenten Programs:  the Cantata "His Last Days"  to be presented on Sunday, April 2 at 3PM and a Maria Desolata Service ( Mary standing with Jesus beneath his cross) on Friday, April 7 at 7:30 PM. These will both be presented at St. Clare of Montefalco Church, 1401 Whittier, Grosse Pointe Park, MI. 


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.

Some of Sr. Joyce Rupp’s most perennially popular books have been collections of her original prayers, blessings, poems, and reflections. In Prayer Seeds, the bestselling author and retreat leader offers almost a hundred new selections on a variety of themes such as the feasts and seasons of the liturgical year, compassion, ministry, difficult times, and important events—all suitable for personal or group prayer.

In 2000, she collected her prayers in the book Out of the Ordinary. In Prayer Seeds, Sr. Joyce follows up with about a hundred never-before-published prayers written since the publication of the first collection. The prayers are organized thematically.
