We go

“where the Spirit leads us”

Thank You for Visiting the Spiritan US Province Website

Welcome to the United States Province website of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit, a Catholic religious missionary community founded in 1703 working in more than sixty countries across the globe.

"The evangelization of the ‘poor’ is our purpose. Therefore we go especially to peoples, groups, and individuals who have not yet heard the message of the Gospel or who have scarcely heard it, to those whose needs are the greatest, and to the oppressed. We also willingly accept tasks for which the Church has difficulty in finding workers." (Spiritan Rule of Life, #4)
