The Spiritans are a Roman Catholic religious congregation founded in France in 1703. Today we have nearly 3,000 priests, brothers and Lay Spiritans. With missions in over 60 countries around the world, 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 the church has difficulty finding ministers. These works include education, parish ministry and retreat ministry in communities from Rhode Island to California. Our fathers and brothers also serve in missions around the world.
The provincial headquarters are located in The Spiritan Center, Bethel Park, PA, just 15 miles south of Pittsburgh. Please contact us if you have any questions or want to know more about the Spiritans.
