Story. . .
The congregation of
the Servants of the Holy Heart of Mary was born
of two inspired dreams during the turmoil of the
mid 1800’s in France. Father François
Delaplace, CSSp dreamt of a better life for the
abandoned children in Paris. Marie Moisan, who
worked at his side, dreamed of a consecrated
life spent in serving the desperately poor.
As the congregation
grew, Father Delaplace prayerfully discerned
with the Servants a call to open missions in the
United States and Quebec. Servants of the Holy
Heart of Mary continue to respond to that call
with the gifts of faith, self-giving and family
spirit in a variety of ministries in France, the
United States, Canada, Cameroon, Cuba,
Argentina, Chile, Peru and Democratic Republic
of the Congo.
