God smundi1o loved the world that he gave his only Son as Savior.

Moved by the deepest need of people to find life and to know the only true God and Jesus Christ whom he sent, Francis of the Cross and Mary of the Apostles founded our Congregation. Our apostolic purpose is to glorify God and to make him known, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, through the proclamation of Jesus Christ as Savior of the world.
