A Few Words from Fr. Gregory:

Of late I have had a great deal of time to reflect on the message of our founder Fr. Francis Jordan. Fr. Jordan founded the Society of the Divine Savior over One Hundred Thirty-Five years ago. Then on July 25, 1896 the first SDS member landed in New York. Joyfully the Salvatorian Family continues to prosper in the United States and throughout the world, sharing the love and mercy of our Savior.

Fr. Jordan's message is really needed today "That All may know the Savior." The Salvatorian community of priests, Brothers and lay people all work together to bring peace and hope to everyone. Together our prayers can promote love and healing to all those who need it most. The Salvatorians will celebrate Fr. Francis Jordan's birthday on August 16th - will you join with us as our Family celebrates his life and mission. Click here to read more about Fr. Jordan's beatification.

Fr. Jordan said: My prayer will never be fruitless provided it is good prayer; either I will be granted what I ask, or I will obtain still greater graces.

Fr. Jordan's birthday is observed during the Salvatorians scheduled Novena of Masses celebrated at our Motherhouse in Rome from August 15 to August 23, in honor of the Assumption of the Blessed Mother. The Blessed Mother surely knew that prayer was never fruitless. Fr. Jordan and the Blessed Mother both found grace and trust in the Father that comes from the simple joys of prayer. Let's work together always to try and find that grace.

May our Savior bless you always, and those you love. Be sure to send your intentions to me either online, by mail or by calling 1-800-254-4902. We'll be sure to include them in our prayers during this special Novena.

May our Savior bless you always, and those you love.


P.S. Please come back to our website in late summer when we will be posting our Christmas card assortment for 2020. We are especially happy with our Christmas Mass Remembrance card which guarantees a year of Masses whoever it is given to -  it would make a meaningful gift and be much appreciated.


It makes a beautiful gift for a friend or family member who needs the comfort of knowing that their loved one will be remembered in the Masses and prayers of the Salvatorians. While we know that the feelings of loss after a loved one has passed can never be completely eliminated, we pray that with our faith in Jesus Christ, they can be made more bearable.

All of the departed souls enrolled in our Salvatorian Memorial Mass Association are assured a remembrance in...

• Two holy Masses celebrated at our Salvatorian motherhouse in Rome;
• 10 Masses on special feast days, including Christmas, Easter, and All Saints Day;
• 12 Novenas of Masses throughout the year; and
• 30 Masses during November, especially for the souls of the faithful departed.

Just a reminder - The Salvatorians also have Healing Mass cards. All you have to do is call or email us and we'll send you as many as you wish. The donation is whatever you can give, no set amount. Sending someone one of our Healing Mass cards, enrolls them in our Masses and prayers for a whole year. You can enroll an individual or a whole family.

Please continue to pray the prayer below with the Salvatorians. With Our Savior by our side, we'll get through this trying time.

God of Salvatorian,
We turn to you with a prayer for protection and healing
during this time when the coronavirus is still spreading.
Help those who are sick.
Grant patience to those who still live in quarantine.
Give strength to all who take care of others.
Inspire scientists in their research.
Strengthen among us the sense of togetherness.
Grant that no one be abandoned.
Let everyone feel safe together and with You,
who are compassion itself.
Through the intercession of Blessed Mary of the Apostles
and Fr. Francis Jordan, we thank you, present and faithful God,
who live and love forever and ever. Amen.
