Welcome from Father Michael Barth

Welcome to our website dedicated to the celebration of our Centennial Year, 1921 – 2021! We are happy to have you visit, learn, celebrate with us and help spread the good news of our mission and ministry.

This celebration is an opportunity to do several things: to thank those faithful men and women who have partnered with us and have shared their time, treasure and talent – without them we would not be here. Of course, none of this could have been accomplished without the support of our benefactors. Reflecting on all the good work the Missionary Servants have accomplished for nearly 100 years, it could not have happened without the kindness and friendship of people like you.

It is a time for us to look back, aware of the charism that has been entrusted to us by our Founder, Fr. Thomas Augustine Judge, CM, ST, and to be grateful to those who sacrificed and zealously labored, often against significant odds, to bring us to this present day. The year further invites us to remember the missions and the people where we are no longer present in mission, but whose lives and realities touched us, taught us, and in leaving have allowed us to move to other places and respond to other needs. Finally, it allows us to look forward and to recommit ourselves to our core call to preserve the Faith among the spiritually abandoned, especially the poor.

From our humble beginning in Holy Trinity, Alabama, to today when we ministry in seven countries we have tried to be faithful to our call to accompany those who are hurting, the people longing for healing. They are those who have not heard the Gospel and those that have but have been alienated from it. These are our treasures, the “least of our sisters and brothers.”

We share this celebration and charism with the other branches of our religious family – the Missionary Cenacle Apostolate, the Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity and the Blessed Trinity Missionary Institute. Along with them, as sons and daughters of Fr. Thomas Judge we celebrate and look, with hope, to the future. Join us in prayer and celebration this year, rejoice with us! Blessed be the Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and forever.
