Life in Kapanga Congo RDC - ELKAP Project run by SOFIA 


SOFIA Salvatorian Office for International Aid promotes development aid projects in the south of the world and builds awareness of developing countries in the west. Education and health are our core interests, to contribute to reaching the UN Millennium Development Goals. Our values include respect for local cultures, efficiency, transparency and continuity. Almost all our project managers are indigenous to the country where they live and work. They spend their lives with the poor, often in remote places.

Salvatorian work around the world


The Society of the Divine Savior, popularly known as the Salvatorians, is an international, religious, congregation of priests and brothers in the Catholic Church, founded in Rome, December 8, 1881, by the Father Francis Mary of the Cross Jordan.

Today members of the Society are engaged in apostolic activities in 40 countries all over the world. We are part of a Salvatorian Family that includes religious sisters (Congregation of the Sisters of the Divine Savior) and laity (International Community of the Divine Savior).





Are you thinking about Diocesan Priesthood? The Application Process for 2018/9 is now underway. We’d be delighted to hear from you.

The Centenary of the death of  

Fr Francis Jordan,


the Founder of the Salvatorians

Jesus taught us to pray for vocations. He said, “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest,” (Matthew 9:37-38).

Please pray for vocations to the priesthood and religious life. May our Lord Jesus Christ continue to inspire many dedicated Christians to imitate Him by offering the gift of themselves in loving service to God in the Church as priests, religious and lay volunteers.

Soon it will be a hundred years since Father Francis Jordan returned to the Heavenly Father. It is therefore a long time that he left the world of humans and of the Society he founded with a goal in the heart of the Universal Church: to make known and loved the only true God and the One he sent, His Son, Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. From a distance of a hundred years, there is no doubt that this goal and this spirit are still up-to-date within the Church and the world of today, and should be kept alive.
