Passion for A Hurting World

The Passionists of St. Paul of the Cross Province belong to a world-wide community of Passionists, a Catholic religious community founded by St. Paul of the Cross, one of the great saints and mystics of the Catholic Church. The Passionists serve as preachers, retreat givers, pastors, educators and in many other ministries in the Church.

The Province of Saint Paul of the Cross is part of a larger world-wide community of thousands of Passionist priests, brothers, sisters and nuns who minister in over fifty countries.
