What We Do

Secular Servites are asked to do the following each day:

  • Live the Christian Virtues of Faith, Hope and Love
  • Pray and try to read Sacred Scripture each day, and/or the Liturgy of the Hours
  • Practice acts of reverence for the Mother of God daily, especially by praying the Servite prayer “The Vigil of Our Lady” and/or the Servite Rosary of the Seven Sorrows of Mary.

The special vocation of lay persons is to seek God and minister God’s love.
The laity have the opportunities to evangelize and bring about the kingdom of God. Lay spirituality is founded on the struggle to live the Gospel of Jesus in the “thick” of life.
It is in the world where God calls lay persons to minister and to encounter the loving presence of God.
