The Sisters, Servants of Mary, are Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses and Certified Nursing Assistants who care for the chronically sick and the terminally ill. We go to patients’ homes primarily at night so that family members and other caregivers can rest.
We came to the United States in 1914 from Spain, where our order was founded by St. Maria Soledad Torres Acosta in 1851. Our Bronx community serves the Bronx, Brooklyn, parts of Queens, upper Manhattan, Yonkers and lower Westchester.
We charge no fee for our services but rely on Divine Providence and the generosity of people like you to fund our ministry.
