Why Salvatorians?

  • Because I love the Charism of our Society, precisely the "UNIVERSALITY" (Omnibus et ubique).
    Fr Sunil Thomas SDS India
  • Because our Founder believed that all baptised are called o be apostles together: men, women, religious and lay alike, not just ordained.
    Fr Joe Rodrigues SDS USA
  • Because one day Jesus' love overwhelmed me and I wanted to follow Him everywhere, and I felt that He wants me to become a Salvatorian.
    Fr Krzysztof Wons SDS Poland
  • Because when I saw how the first Salvatorians I met were, I felt their service and spontaneity and the strength of their faith, which made them happy and I wanted to be like them.
    Fr Alfredo Tinoco SDS Colombia

To be priest or brother?

What does it mean to be a Salvatorian?

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.


Salvatorian religious Brother
The religious Brother is a person who consecrates himself to God through the vows of Chastity, Obedience, and Poverty thereby surrendering himself completely to God with all his heart and life. The Salvatorian religious Brother can contribute to the salvation of people by working in the formation of lay leaders, in formal education, in spiritual direction, in youth ministry, in the communications media. The religious Brother is one who by means of his consecration discovers new ways to lead people to Jesus.


Salvatorian religious Priest
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. The religious Priest can help many people encounter Jesus and find salvation. As a Salvatorian Priest, he ministers with a distinct spirituality, a Salvatorian spirituality, which marks him.
