The Salvatorian Family traces its roots back to the Apostolic Teaching Society founded in Rome on December 8, 1881, by the servant of God Father Francis Mary of the Cross Jordan. Fr. Jordan saw the Church as a “discipleship of equals,” and his foundation consisted of priests, brothers, sisters and lay members working side by side, using all the ways and means which the love of Christ inspired. 

Today, the Salvatorian Family consists of three branches: Society of the Divine Savior (Salvatorian Fathers and Brothers), Congregation of the Sisters of the Divine Savior (Salvatorian Sisters), and International Community of the Divine Savior (Lay Salvatorians). They minister throughout the world, responding to the signs of the times and striving to be a prophetic voice of renewal in the Church and the world. Salvatorians seek to fulfill their mission by being one with those they serve, manifesting to the world the goodness and kindness of our Savior.

Jordan Ministry Team is an outreach of the Salvatorian Community. It is a collaborative effort sponsored by the Society of the Divine Savior (Salvatorian Fathers and Brothers), the Sisters of the Divine Savior (Salvatorian Sisters) and the Lay Salvatorians.

Jordan Ministry Team (JMT) is named after Father Francis Jordan because it wishes to implement his founding vision of empowering lay Catholics to join diocesan clergy in promoting the education of youth, assisting in the Church’s life and ministry at the parish level and in promoting the Christian message of the saving and healing power of Jesus the Divine Savior in this world by all ways and means possible.
