We are Family

The heart of Father Francis was aglow with apostolic zeal. He urged his followers to carry out his apostolic work by all means the love of God dictates.


Whatever way of life you will be called to it is important not to be afraid to follow God’s call and trust Him that He will be with you in special way of life

Salvatorian religious life is a way to live following Jesus as the Saviour of the world. To be a Salvatorian religious is to believe in life, to trust in God's action, to be full of hope, to cultivate noble ideals, to involve everyone in the building of a better world. A Salvatorian is one who feels saved by Jesus, since he is his friend, brother, and Lord, and so wants to lead others to salvation. more+
The religious Priest also consecrates himself through the vows of Chastity, Obedience and Poverty. In addition, he participates in the second degree of the sacrament of Orders, the presbyterate. He is the one responsible for parish ministry, for the celebration of the Eucharist and of the sacrament of Reconciliation.
