On Sept. 26th, SSMI's traveled to JFK airport to welcome to the United States the pilgrimage Blessed Josaphata icon w/relic accompanied by Sr. MariaZelia Znak from Brazil. Wearing Josaphata scarves and toting Josaphata balloons, we caught the eye of those waiting for their loved ones as we waited for ours.   Blessed Josaphata will visit some of our parishes while she is with us until Jan. 17, 2015.

Welcome to the website of SSMI (U.S.) – The Immaculate Conception Province of the Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate (SSMI).  Founded in Ukraine in 1892, the Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate is a Byzantine Ukrainian Catholic congregation of more than 900 sisters and has ministries in thirteen countries: Ukraine, Brazil, Canada, Serbia, Slovakia, Poland, Argentina, Italy, Germany, France, England, Australia and the United States.  

We strive to remain faithful to the charism of our founders, Blessed Josaphata Hordashevska, Fr. Jeremiah Lomnitsky and Fr. Cyril Seletsky.   We work together to put into action their words to “serve where the need is the greatest,” and to “educate the heart of our people for God.”   Our ministries include: Education, Care of the Elderly, Retreats, Sewing Vestments, Pastoral Ministry, but are always ready to adapt our ministries to the needs and signs of the times. 

For over 75 years we have been serving the needs of people in the United States.  We count on your spiritual and financial support so that we can continue serving in our various ministries and to make necessary improvements on our property.  

We invite you to browse our website and join us in our ministry either through prayer, becoming a Lay Associate or if you have a vocation as a Sister Servant of Mary Immaculate.  Please contact us at 845-753-2840 or e-mail me at
