Who We Are:
We are a Religious Order of men consecrated to God for the service of the Church. We live our consecration to God in a community of brothers, supporting one another in our vocation and ministry. We profess the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity and obedience. We are a total 354 members with communities in the Mexico, U.S., Costa Rica, Chile, Spain, Italy and Columbia. Our order is divided into 3 provinces: Province of Mexico, Province of Felix de Jesus and Christ the Priest Province, the province here in the United States to which we belong. Its members are distributed among 57 communities, 40 of which are in Mexico.
According to our Constitutions:
Our Congregation is a Religious Clerical Institute of Pontifical Rite whose members may be priests, deacons, or coadjutor brothers. (art 1.4)
The Servant of God Felix de Jesus Rougier, in obedience to a special divine call, founded our Congregation, under the protection of Our Lady of Guadalupe on December 25, 1914, at Tepeyac Hill in Mexico City. (art 1.1)
St. Pius X recognized our charism and through the mission that God had entrusted to the Congregation, gave us the name of Missionaries of the Holy Spirit, "which is the program of our priestly and religious life." (art. 1.2)
The Church approved the Institute and its Constitutions on the 12th of December of 1939 and assists us in solicitude to grow and bear fruit out of fidelity to the fundamental charism. (art 1.3)
