Our Mission

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

Originally there is a mis­sionary expe­ri­ence in Heart’s Home that leads young women to desire to incar­nate the charism of com­pas­sion in the reli­gious life. In answer to their demand Father Thierry de Roucy founded the Servants of God’s Presence in 1994, a con­tem­pla­tive/active reli­gious com­mu­nity. The con­gre­ga­tion is rec­og­nized as a Public Association of the Faithful by the Bishop of Fréjus-Toulon (France).

The sis­ters live in small com­mu­ni­ties of five or six sis­ters. True and simple rela­tion­ships with one another enable their com­pan­ion­ship to be a help on their journey to God.

The days are rythmed by com­munal and per­sonal prayer.

The sis­ters incar­nate the charism of com­pas­sion:

  • by visiting their neighbors and the most suffering or lonely people,
  • by opening their houses to all and offering a loving and peaceful presence,
  • by fostering a spiritual education through catechism classes, youth groups, retreats or summer camps,
  • by being at the service of Heart’s Home.

The Servants of God’s Presence count today 32 sis­ters of five dif­ferent nation­al­i­ties. They are pre­sent in France, Peru, El Salvador and Argentina. Some sis­ters are tem­porarily living in a Heart’s Home Center (New-York, Switzerland, Ukraine, Brazil).

"Live to the full your ded­i­ca­tion to God, so that this world may never be without a ray of divine beauty to lighten the path of human exis­tence." (Vita Consecrata #109, John-Paul II)
