The Missionary Servants of the Most Holy Trinity are dedicated to spreading the Gospel, developing a missionary spirit in the laity and preserving the Faith in areas and among those who are spiritually neglected and abandoned. We do this by:
SPREADING THE GOSPEL
As vowed brothers in community, we have an active ministry in spreading the Word of God in our encounter with others. We follow the Gospel call to, “Go into the world and proclaim the gospel to every creature.” Proclaiming the Gospel through our words is essential.
RESPONDING TO THE NEEDS OF THE POOR, ISOLATED, AND MARGINALIZED
It is not enough, however, to only proclaim the Gospel with our words. We strive to proclaim it with our lives as well. Living and working alongside the people we serve is our witness – sharing life’s joys and pains with them.
Since many of the communities we serve are often in rural and remote areas we exercise our Charism in “making every Catholic an apostle”. Calling forth the laity and empowering the Baptized, together we spread the Gospel to many people and places.
Today our Congregation serves 37 missions spread through the U.S., Puerto Rico, Colombia, Costa Rica, Haiti, Honduras, and Mexico. We currently have 121 professed members, with formation programs in four different countries

LIFE AS A BROTHER OFFERS UNIQUE OPPORTUNITIES
Taking our unique qualities into consideration, each man must discern if God’s call to religious life will be expressed as a priest or a Missionary Brother. The process of discernment is never done alone, each student will have the companionship of spiritual direction and the attentiveness of a formation director.
In the case of a discernment that leads to priesthood, studies will include philosophy and theology. In the case of a discernment that leads to the vocation of a Missionary Brother, then studies will focus on the best response to the poor and abandoned and the making of apostles. In other words, varied ways to minister.
Life as a Brother offers unique opportunities for those who look for more practical and tangible ways to minister to those in need. We have Brothers who are trained and accredited nurse practitioners, lawyers, social workers and, even, a medical doctor.
The Missionary Servants are governed by a leadership team made up of the Superior General, referred to as the Custodian General, a Vicar and three General Counselors. Pictured is: (back row r - l: Fr. Michael Barth, S.T. Custodian General, Fr. Guy Wilson, S.T. General Counselor; Fr. Jesús Ramirez, S.T. General Counselor, (front row: R - L) Fr. Raphael Pisso, S.T. Vicar General and Brother Raúl Mejía, S.T. General Counselor. This team serves for a four-year term, guiding the Congregation and being of service to our members.
If you feel you may be called to the life and charism of the Missionary Servants of the Most Holy Trinity, then we invite you to consider the three questions Fr. Thomas A. Judge asked every young man considering a vocation with us:
Do you love God? • How much do you love God? • What sacrifices would you make for the love of God?
