About the Spiritans


We are a Roman Catholic Religious Congregation of nearly three thousand members, founded in 1703. Our missions are spread worldwide. While we may be found involved in many diverse ministries, we have dedicated ourselves to working with the poor and in those situations where the Church has difficulty in finding ministers.

One Heart. One Spirit.

  • We seek first to allow the Spirit to transform us in our heart and soul
  • We are open to the Spirit alive in others
  • We go and share the Spirit wherever people are suffering
