#Called to Evangelize

"Using all means possible." 

                        -St. Anthony Claret 

US

ABOUT

We are a Missionary Congregation of priests and brothers founded by Saint Anthony Claret in Spain on July 16, 1849.  

We were founded 

‘to proclaim the Word of God 

using all means possible, reaching out

to the poor and marginalized.’ 

Our missionary call impels us to live

in community and our Claretian spirituality

is strengthened by the Word of God, 

the Eucharist and our Marian sonship.  

OUR FOUNDER

Saint Anthony Claret,  C.M.F.  was born on December 23, 1807 and died on October 24, 1870.

He was a Spanish Roman Catholic archbishop and missionary, and was confessor of Isabella II of Spain.

He founded the Congregation of Missionary Sons of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, commonly called the Claretians on July 16, 1849

Saint Anthony Claret

Saint Anthony Claret had a deep devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Because of that, he calls her "Our Foundress" since we all are called and become Sons of her Heart. 

THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY
