Missing sisters: Sr. Longina, Sr. Evelyn and Sr. Rose MargaretThe Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate, of the Immaculate Conception Province in the USA, welcome you to our website.
2018 began with a new General Curia for the SSMI's with the election of Sr. Sofija Lebedowicz as Superior General and her Councilors, Sr. Bonifatia Dakiv, Sr. Janice Soluk, Sr. Mykola Ctepac and Sr. Luiza Ciupa.
We were founded in 1892 in Zhuzhel, Ukraine, the first active women's congregation in the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church. Presently, we have almost 700 sisters worldwide with provinces in Brazil, Canada, Poland, Serbia, Slovakia, Ukraine and the United States, as well as being missioned in Argentina, Australia, Belgium, France, Germany, Kazhakstan, and our Generalate in Rome, Italy.
We began our ministry in the United States in 1935 and were established as a province in 1959. We strive to live in the example, spirit and charism of our Patroness, the Mother of God, our Foundress, Blessed Josaphata Hordashevska, and our co-founders Rev. Jeremiah Lomnitsky OSBM, and Rev. Cyril Seletsky. We continue today to strive to carry on the passion and charism of our foundress and co-founders. We welcome you to browse our website and also encourage you to pray for vocations to the Sisters Servants, to discern if YOU have a vocation to serve where the need is the greatest in our church!
Glory to God! Honor to Mary! Peace to Us!
