Father Francis Jordan
* 16.06.1848  -  † 08.09.1918

God our Father, you called Father Francis Mary of the Cross Jordan to be your apostle, to make you known and loved by all people everywhere, using all the ways and means your love inspires.

You filled him with universal apostolic zeal, with the goodness and the kindness of the Divine Saviour, with a deep trust in God's loving providence, with a profound spirit of prayer, with a sincere devotion to Mary, Mother of the Saviour, and with the courage to follow you, even into the mystery of the Cross.

Grant us, by his intercession, and according to your will, the graces we ask you ....., hoping that he will soon be numbered among your saints.

We make this prayer through Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Call to Proclaim

The kindness and love of God for humanity have appeared in Jesus Christ.

In Him, the one true Saviour of the world, all people are called to union with God and one another to form the People of God.

Inspired by the Holy Spirit and out of concern for the salvation of all, Father Francis Mary of the Cross Jordan founded the Society of the Divine Saviour and gave it the apostolic purpose to announce to all people that Jesus is the Saviour.

The Constitution of the Society


Moved by the words of the Gospel: "Eternal life is this: to know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent," our Founder gave us the command and mission not to rest content until all people know, love, and serve Jesus as their Saviour.


And he said to them, "Go out to the whole world; proclaim the Good News to all creation"
Mark 16:15

powolanie2Discernment is the process of actively seeking to know God’s will for our lives. If we want to know something from someone, what do we do? First, we ask them and then we listen to their reply. It works the same with God. First, you must ask and then you must listen to His reply.

We call this communication between God and us - prayer. Often, the difficult part for us is the listening, because we usually don’t hear a voice speaking to us. So we must be open and ready for Him to speak to us in other ways. This could be through other people, through events or through heartfelt reflection. God speaks to us quite often. We are not always listening.

First and foremost in your discernment is an active and disciplined prayer life. Other steps often recommended include: getting a spiritual director, reading information about all vocations, speaking with persons who are happy and active in their vocation, visiting seminaries and religious communities, and becoming involved in service to others.

Prayer is important in all vocations, not just priesthood or consecrated religious life. People in every vocation are called to communicate, talk, and listen with God. Not having prayer as an important focus point in your vocation, no matter which one that might be, is like not talking to or listening to your parents as you grew from being a baby to being an adult. It does not work.

Prayer is communicating with God, not just talking to Him. Communication involves talking and (more importantly) listening. Thus, prayer is extremely important in each vocation. It is possibly the most important part of a vocation.


Do not be afraid

Whatever way of life you will be called to it is important not to be afraid to follow God’s call and trust Him that He will be with you in this special way of life. For some people discernment takes a lot of time, but the longer time you take the more difficult it is to make a decision. So, recognising your vocation and making a life decision is based on a strong belief and trust in God.

If God is calling you to priestly and religious life and the charism of our founder Fr Francis Jordan is close to your heart, you are welcome to join us and become a Salvatorian Priest or Brother. Women are welcome to join our Salvatorian Sisters. In this ministry we serve people and proclaim Jesus as the only Saviour of the world.

If God is calling you to married or single life and you still want to actively participate in the apostolic mission of our Society we welcome you as a Lay Salvatorian. In this way you can help us to make Jesus Christ widely know and loved as Saviour of the world.

Whatever way of life you will follow, please remember us in your prayers, remember our apostolate and mission. Pray for our priests, brothers, sisters and lay Salvatorians so that we can wholeheartedly fulfil our vocation. Please pray for vocations to the priesthood and religious life especially to the Salvatorian life.

O Lord, help me, show me the way!
Without you, I can do nothing.
I hope all things from You.
In you, O Lord, I have hoped,
I will not be confounded for ever.
