We are called the Congregation of missionaries, sons of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Claretian Missionaries). The Congregation was founded by St. Anthony Mary Claret in Vic, Spain on July 16, 1849 and was approved by Pius IX on Dec. 22, 1865.

The aim of our Congregation is to seek in all things the glory of God, the Sanctification of our members and the salvation of people throughout the World in keeping with our missionary charism in the Church.


  • Going out into the whole world to proclaim the good news to every creature.
  • In the Church we are steadfast helpers of its shepherds in the Ministry of the Word, using all means possible to spread the good news of the Kingdom throughout the world
  • Driven by the Spirit of Claret, we are apostles of charity and love especially to the needy and the less privileged.
  • Faithfully, we celebrate the Sacraments, preach and promote peace, happiness, joy and reconciliation among God’s people.
  • As an apostolic community, we work in Parishes, Schools, Chaplaincies, etc., in accordance with the needs of the local and the universal church.
