Servants of Charity

Vocation Director, Servants of Charity, 16195 Old U.S. 12, Chelsea, MI 48118-9646; (734) 475-8430.

Our brothers and priests strive to imitate Jesus, the Good Samaritan, by bringing the Father's healing love to the needy. Started in Italy by Blessed Louis Guanella in 1908, we are now represented in 19 countries in Europe, the Americas, Africa, and Asia. In our U.S. province, we provide "Bread and the Lord" by serving people with developmental disabilities, in parish ministry, and by assisting part-time in other ministries. We minister in the Archdioceses of Philadelphia and Manila, Philippines, and in the dioceses of Lansing, MI, and Providence, RI. We also run the Pious Union of St. Joseph, an association of the faithful who serve the dying. We seek men, 18 and over, who are prayerful, simple in lifestyle, hospitable, collaborative, with a compassionate concern for the poor, and rooted in the life of the local and universal church. Candidates should have at least a high-school diploma or equivalent with a capacity for further study and training.
