Join Us

For the Spiritans, the journey into the future is not a guided tour, but rather an around-the-world adventure. On this adventure, the Holy Spirit is in charge, and the needs of the people on the side of the road determine the stops we make. We go where the Spirit leads us.

Is there something more in life for you?

Messe et dédication à l'Esprit SaintIf you are looking for a sense of direction and purpose in your life, the Spiritans have been proclaiming the Good News and serving those in need for more than 300 years. Spiritans are called to serve others in a mission of dedicating our labor and our lives to God. Come, join us, and give your life a new direction!

“It is a journey worth making. By walking together as sisters and brothers in Christ, I believe that we bring enrichment to each other. It is not our institute that matters but the reign of God. To establish it, it is worth replying positively to each sign of the times, to each initiative of the Spirit. And could not the strongest sign of our times be precisely this journey undertaken with one another?” Frans Wijnen, CSSp
