Salvatorians Unite for National Assembly in Hales Corners

June 17, 2013

Salvatorians – “Called to be Apostles for the World”

One hundred seventy priests, brothers, sisters and lay men and women representing each branch of the Salvatorian Family will come together in Milwaukee for a national assembly of its North American members. The week culminates with a celebration honoring Jubilees.

“I think our founder, Fr. Francis Jordan would be very pleased to see all three branches of his Family meeting, praying and planning for five days and then celebrating Jubilees on the sixth day,” said Fr. Glen Willis.

Sr. Virginia Honish agrees, saying, “Having all members of the Salvatorian Family represented while learning and discussing topics that are at the heart of who we are, is a profound experience of collaboration.” She adds, “At the end of the national assembly we can say that, together, we learned many things and are called to new spiritual depths and challenges.”

Salvatorians Background
As long ago as the 1800s, Salvatorian founder John Baptist Jordan envisioned a Catholic movement of women and men religious, along with lay women and men, both married and single, serving as equals with a common mission. Today, each branch of the Salvatorian Family maintains its autonomy in day-to-day decisions, yet unique to religious orders, work closely with one another to set priorities for social, educational and pastoral ministries in the U.S. and abroad. The global Salvatorian Family of 3,100 members comprises Sisters of the Divine Savior, priests and brothers of the Society of the Divine Savior and Lay Salvatorian women and men. Together, they serve in 45 countries on six continents.
