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

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.

Why a brother-priest-deacon?

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 Deacon.
The religious Deacon also consecrates himself through the vows of Chastity, Obedience and Poverty. In addition, he participates in ordained ministry in its first degree, or the diaconate. As a Deacon, he dedicates his time to the poor, to visits to the sick, to the sacraments of Baptism and Matrimony, to preaching and the proclamation of the Gospel, in addition to collaboration in parish ministry. The religious Deacon is one who through his consecration and ministry serves the People of God principally by means of charitable service.

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.
