We are an apostolic Congregation belonging to the Ignatian spiritual tradition.

Our internationality, our ecumenical openness, and the great diversity of our missions are essential parts of who we are.

It is Christ who has brought us together.

It is in his name that we are sent throughout the world where we hope to be of greater service to God and our neighbour.


Since the 13th century at Tournai, solidarity with the poor has been at the heart of our origins and has not ceased to be expressed in different ways during the course of history. This experience is an example of God’s faithfulness.

It is this faithfulness which leads to us opening ourselves more and more to the unexpected, in hearing the call of Christ and placing our humble trust in the One who invites us, saying: "Come and See! "
