One Heart. One Spirit.
The U.S. Spiritans are a part of a Roman Catholic religious congregation founded in France in 1703 called the Congregation of the Holy Spirit. Today we have nearly three thousand priests, brothers and Lay Spiritan Associates. With missions in over sixty countries around the world (in red above), we are involved in many diverse ministries including education, parish work, and refugee ministry.
In the United States, we dedicate ourselves to working with the poor and marginalized in places where finding ministers is difficult. Our efforts include education, parish ministry, and retreat ministry in communities from Rhode Island to California.
U.S. Spiritans place a great emphasis on education. We work in four universities, two graduate programs of theological education, two secondary schools and several chaplancies.
At least fifteen Spiritan priests are pursuing full-time graduate studies at American universities.
The headquarters for the U.S. Province, and The Spiritan Center, are located in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, just twelve miles south of Pittsburgh. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org at if you have any questions or want to know more about the Spiritans.
