Welcome to our website!

The 31 participants who attended the Boundless Compassion Retreat this past week found the days both enriching and challenging. They really entered into the spirit of the retreat talks, discussions, media, and activities. Now they are eager to take that same spirit back into their daily lives. The talks were given mostly by Joyce Rupp OSM. Margaret Stratman OSM and Val Lewandoski OSM assisted Joyce. The lovely setting, St. Benedict's Center in Schuyler, added to the reflective experience.

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.
