Servi Jesu et Mariae

The Servants of Jesus and Mary (Servi Jesu et Mariae - SJM) are a Roman Catholic Congregation for priests, which was founded in 1988 by Father Andreas Hönisch, a former Jesuit, expelled by the congregation due to his traditional views of Catholic doctrine and pedagogy.

The first members were Scouts and Guides of the Katholische Pfadfinderschaft Europas, the German branch of the Union Internationale des Guides et Scouts d'Europe. Until today the pastoral care of the scout groups is one of the main priorities of the congregation.

In 1994 the Servi Jesu et Mariae were recognized as a Congregation of Papal Law and was attached to the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei. According to themselves they try to fulfill the preconciliar life of the Jesuits. In accordance with that goal they celebrate the Mass according to the Roman Missal of 1962, but also use the new, current missal of Pope Paul VI from 1969.

In the beginning the scholastics of the Congregation went to the seminary of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter and to the seminary of the Diocese of Fulda, but now they have their own seminary in Blindenmarkt in Lower Austria.

The SJM are especially active in youth work, and working with the Catholic Scout Movement of Europe. Their motherhouse and seminary is in Blindenmarkt, Austria.
