The Sister Servants of the Eternal Word is a public association of the faithful founded by Mother Mary Gabriel Long in 1987. The community is contemplative-active, committed to evangelization through catechesis and retreats, according to the ideals of St. Francis and St. Dominic who rebuilt the Church in Truth and Charity.
The Sister Servants run Casa Maria Retreat House, and also participate in family catechesis, Sacramental preparation, and other catechetical missions throughout the diocese, teaching "spiritual things spiritually." (1 Cor 2:13)
Our community hosts structured retreats open to individuals, couples, or groups, which run from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon. They include conferences on the Faith and the spiritual life, daily Mass, Benediction, opportunities to pray the Rosary and Divine Office together, as well as time for private prayer and for the reception of the sacraments.
This is the perfect summer to delve more deeply into the Gospel of John. In this third installment of his 33-day consecration series Fr. Gaitley has truly saved the best for last! 33 Days to Greater Glory stands as the culmination of a trilogy of consecrations that begins with Our Lady, then to Jesus, and finally to God the Father. This consecration to our Heavenly Father truly is the perfect climax of this powerful consecration series that has changed the spiritual lives of millions of people throughout the world.
