The Servants of Mary, Ministers to the Sick, consecrated as we are to the service of God and the Church, aspire after perfect charity, following Christ through the practice of the evangelical counsels of chastity, poverty and obedience, living in community and dedicating ourselves for the love of God to the diligent and gratuitous care of the sick, preferably in their own homes, seeing in them Christ Himself. We belong to the life and sanctity of the Church, being incorporated into it by our profession of the evangelical counsels.
