We were founded by a Vincentian priest, Father Thomas A. Judge and Mother Boniface Keasey. During the early 1900’s, Father Judge formed a group of lay people to be missionaries in their everyday lives, reaching out to those whose faith was at risk, initially among immigrant Italians. Later he was assigned to Alabama, and many followed him to help start a mission. Among the volunteers was a young woman, Louise Margaret Keasey, a school teacher from Butler, Pennsylvania, who at the age of thirty-one felt called to teach in their new mission school in Phenix City, Alabama. Some of the volunteers, both men and women, soon felt called to stay and form religious communities. The women incorporated in 1918 and chose the name Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity. “Lulu” Keasey became the first General Custodian of the new sisters’ community and received the name Mother Mary Boniface of the Sacred Heart.
The prime concerns of Father Judge were to work among the abandoned and to help the laity to develop their gifts to become missionaries in the providence of their everyday life. We Missionary Servants have continued to carry out this mission since 1918 in many ways, in many places. Our archival photos and our Sisters here today have many stories to tell.
Currently, we are engaged in religious education and social programs with at-risk children and teens, social services including direct aid, counseling and advocacy, migrant outreach, medical care, young adult ministries, family life development and retreat ministries. No matter what work we may find ourselves doing, we do it as Catholic missionaries.
As we have done for 100 years, the Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity continues to serve the Church in many dioceses in the continental United States, Puerto Rico, and Mexico. Our work continues to seek out and serve the abandoned population and areas, especially among Catholics who are not being spiritually nurtured, especially the poor.

With deep gratitude in the Trinity,
The Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity
