Salvatorians (Society of the Divine Savior)
SDS are called to follow Jesus Christ, the Divine Saviour, by living as a community within the universal Church for apostolic service. As with our Founder, Father Francis Mary of the Cross Jordan, we proclaim to all people the salvation which has appeared in Jesus Christ, so that by the lives we live and in our apostolic activities, all may come "to know You, the one true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent" (John 17:3), and have life in all its fullness. This mission compels us to share our call to be apostles with people from all walks of life.
