Mission Statement

We Salvatorians are called to follow Jesus Christ, the Divine Saviour, by living as 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 only 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. We are ready to serve all people everywhere, by all ways and means which the love of Christ inspires. We trust in God's loving providence in discerning and courageously responding to the particular signs of the times in each place and age. Today, these signs urge us to be a prophetic voice for the renewal of Church and world:
 

  • by conveying in a contemporary way the values of the Gospel in dialogue with each culture;
  • by animating lay people to live their baptismal commitment for Christian leadership, ministry, and service;
  • by joining the poor in challenging contemporary evils which frustrate a fully human life, particularly social injustice, poverty and violence in all their forms.

We Salvatorians seek to fulfil our mission by being one with those we serve, manifesting to the world the goodness and kindness of God our Saviour.
