The Secular Order of the Servants of Mary is a group of men and women who live out their baptism in the spirituality of the mendicant Order of the Servants of Mary. They live the Gospel of Jesus every part of their lives and work to fulfill the commandment of love of God and neighbor. These men and women follow the inspiration of the Seven Holy Founders of the Servite Order, which was founded in 1233 by Florentine merchants. The National Shrine of Our Sorrowful Mother (The Grotto) supports this community of Secular Servants of Mary.
