The Servants of God’s Presence

The Servants of God’s presence in France, 2008.

The mis­sion of the Servants of God’s Presence is to serve the others through friend­ship and to edu­cate them with com­plete humanity.

"Be passionate women, entirely given to God and entirely given to the world."
Rev. Thierry de Roucy

The con­tem­pla­tive-active reli­gious com­mu­nity of the Servants of God’s pres­ence was founded in 1994 by Rev.Thierry de Roucy.

This com­mu­nity answers to the desire of young female Heart’s Home vol­un­teers to give them­selves entirely to God and devote their lives to the charism of Compassion.

Since its cre­ation, the com­mu­nity has grown to 30 sis­ters rep­re­senting nowa­days five dif­ferent nation­al­i­ties. The con­gre­ga­tion is rec­og­nized as a Public Association of the Faithful by the Bishop of Frejus-Toulon (France).

The sis­ters work in rela­tion with the dif­ferent branches of Heart’s Home. They live in small com­mu­ni­ties of five or six sis­ters located in France, Peru, El sal­vador and since 2003, some of them have joined the min­istry of Heart’s Home in New York.

True and simple rela­tion­ships with one another result in a fruitful com­pan­ion­ship that con­sti­tutes a real sup­port on their way to God. The Servants of God’s pres­ence pray every day through the liturgy of the hours, the rosary, the lectio divina, the Mass and the Adoration. Every month, they spend one day in soli­tude and silence and they also take a yearly spir­i­tual retreat.

The sis­ters embody the charism of Compassion by:

  • visiting the loneliest and most suffering in their neighborhood.
  • opening their homes to everyone, becoming thus a loving and peaceful presence for their friends.
  • offering spiritual education which may include teaching catechism classes, leading retreats, organizing youth groups or summer camps…
  • serving Heart’s Home organization, taking part in the communication and the orientation programs of the Missionaries as well as by accompanying each one of them during their Mission.
