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.
