Welcome to the website

of the Society of the Sisters of Social Service (SSS)

The Society of the Sisters of Social Service is an international religious community founded in 1923 in Hungary. We are a Roman Catholic Society for Apostolic Life.

It developed into three branches which are united by a Federation.

Our branch with its center in Budapest consists of five districts: Cuban, Hungarian, Romanian, Slovakian and the one in the United States with sisters ministering in the diocese of Buffalo (NY) and the archdioceses of Miami (FL).


The Federation of the Sisters of Social Service embraces three continents and nine countries.

The Californian branch has sisters ministering mainly on the West Coast of the United States as well as in Mexico, Taiwan, and in the Philippines.

The third branch is located in Canada with its center in Toronto and with sisters ministering both in the Eastern and Western parts of Canada.
