The Congregation of the Servants of Mary...

...on the footsteps of Father Cestac

Servants of Mary, we express our vocation by our name: 

the Holy Virgin Mary is our mother and our guide in our spiritual life. 

The source place or origin of the Congregation, Notre Dame du Refuge (Our Lady of Refuge),

with the Monastery of St. Bernard, remains the welcoming centre for spiritual, social and educational needs.


Present on 4 continents, our communities

from Africa (Ivory Coast), Latin America (Argentina and Uruguay),

Asia (India) and Europe (Spain and France),

share daily life in the service of life, in fidelity to the Spirit received...

Our mission

Rooted in a life of prayer, as Servants of Mary we are sent to serve God by serving our brothers, preferably the poor and the little ones, to proclaim the Good News and to reveal the face of Mary "as a sign of hope for peoples".

In Father Cestac's footsteps, today we are continuing the social, educational, spiritual mission differently. Also, by the creation of associations and foundations, the spirit of the Good Father continues to restore the taste for life, to the women and men of our time.
