Why We Are
Why are we Poor Servants of the Mother of God?
- We believe that we are called to hold the Christ-light for each person regardless of race, colour, religion or disability.
- We believe that we are invited to be missionary and to share the riches and challenges of the Gospel wherever we are.
- We are convinced that the earth we live on is precious and beautiful and deserves to be preserved intact for future generations as an Incarnational gift.
- We are Poor Servants because, following in the footsteps of Mother Magdalen, we are attracted to the God who became one of us. Each day we strive anew to reach out with the compassion and love of Jesus.
with his Father
for the world
We, the Poor Servants of the Mother of God,
In response to God’s Incarnate love,
And sharing Mother Magdalen Taylor’s
Deep understanding of this mystery,
Seek to share God’s love for each person,
Through our service of the poor and needy,
Vowed to a life of prayer and service,
We live in a community of faith, openness and hospitality
And are committed to the stewardship of creation.
As God’s gift to all.
