Dear Missionary Friend,
Easter is a time when we focus on our Lord Jesus Christ’s death on the Cross and His triumphant Resurrection. Father Thomas Judge, C.M., founder of Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity, spoke of the symbol of the Cross. “The Cross is a sign that provokes us to love, to worship, to gratitude, to thanksgiving, to service. The Cross is our hope, our joy, our peace and consolation. It is a blessed pledge of a happy future, a happy eternity. We cannot look upon that Cross without knowing that thereupon was paid the price of our soul’s salvation. In the Cross there is power, in the Cross there is help.”
Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity continue to follow in the footsteps of the apostles who, filled with the Holy Spirit, went forth to spread everywhere the knowledge and love of Jesus. We continue to serve and promote the “preservation of the faith”, by developing a missionary spirit in the laity, with the goal that “every Catholic be an apostle.”
At our missions and through our retreat centers, we minister to “spiritually neglected and abandoned Catholics who are in danger of losing their faith, especially the poor.” We seek to make the Church effectively present where it is weak or misunderstood.
Some of our ministries include:
- Religious Education at the parish and diocesan level.
- Sacramental preparation, including for adults who, although baptized as infants, never received the Sacraments of First Communion or Confirmation.
- Retreat work, including unique programs for youth and young adults which encourage full participation in the life and mission of the Catholic Church.
- Family Life development and enrichment.
- Interfaith ministries.
And so many more…

This Easter, let us remember that happiness comes from understanding God and knowing that He has a plan for our eternal joy and peace. Happiness comes from knowing and loving the Savior and living our lives in accordance with His teachings. As powerful as our message is, it can only be shared heart to heart, soul to soul, spirit to spirit by caring and showing love. We continue to be watchful for one another and reach out to one another. And as we do so, we radiate our Catholic faith in our own lives to the people we serve.
Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity asks you to donate whatever gift you can offer that will help us with our present ministries.

Please list the names of your loved ones you wish to include in our Novena. I will make sure their intentions and yours are included. To quote our co-founder, Mother Boniface, “May you in this holy season be as happy as you have made others, and may our Risen Savior comfort and favor you with the sweetness of His Easter peace and joy.”
With deep gratitude in the Trinity,
Sister Marie, MSBT
