Our Lady of Fatima 

Perth Amboy, NJ

We began our ministry at Our Lady of Fatima in the 1940s. In the years since, we have attended to the needs of a growing Hispanic population and are currently one of only two Hispanic parishes in the area. Many of our parishioners could be classified as “working poor.”

Immaculate Heart of Mary

San Antonio, TX


St. Joseph parish is in the heart of Jersey City. It is the oldest continuously operating Catholic Church in Jersey City. It is a multicultural parish. Beginnings of this church goes back to 1857. The church was dedicated to St. Joseph, the patron of the working men. The early settlers were Irish laborers. The Claretians took over the parish on July 1, 2019.

In our Province we serve in the following places across the U.S.,
particularly in high-poverty, urban areas:

In 1902, the Claretians arrived in San Antonio from Mexico and in 1912 built this parish. The church itself has since been designated a Historic Exceptional Landmark by the city of San Antonio. Today the parish brings in people from a wide area of the surrounding community.

This parish serves an immigrant Hispanic community on the southeast side of Chicago. Like many Claretian parishes, at OLG we deal with poverty, gangs, drugs, domestic violence, and unemployment. Our church is also the home of the National Shrine of St. Jude that is visited by thousands of people every year.

San Gabriel Mission

San Gabriel, CA

We arrived at the mother of the California Missions in 1908 to further the charism of our founder by restoring, rebuilding, and revitalizing the spiritual life of the parish. Today in this multicultural parish, we offer programs and services in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese.


Corpus Christi

Stone Mountain, GA

Corpus Christi is one of the most diverse parishes we serve. Its almost 1,600 families come from over 60 countries and include Native Americans, Asians, Caribbeans, Hispanics, Africans, African Americans, Europeans, and white Americans. We also help the large number of refugees in our parish establish themselves in this country. 

We began our ministry at Sacred Heart—the oldest parish in the Diocese of Phoenix—in 1915. We minister to a diverse range of parishioners, from older Anglo members to younger Hispanic families who come from all around the region to participate in our Spanish services and programs. 


St. Anthony Mary Claret

Fresno, CA

We built this parish in 1951 to minister to the English and Spanish-speaking community in and around Fresno. Today our parish serves between 1,500 and 2,000 families, most of which are Hispanic. Our ministries include help for immigrants and leadership development.

Chapel of the Martyrs of Barbastro

Springfield, MO

We began our ministry in this parish along the border in 2000 as an inter-provincial partnership with the Claretian Province of Mexico. This parish serves families that have migrated to the border in search of employment primarily in the mega-factories employing the poorest of the poor at substandard wages.

The Chapel of the Martyrs of Barbastro the worship center for the Catholic Campus Ministry Center of Springfield Missouri.  Here we serve the Catholic students from 3 local colleges (Missouri State University, Rury University, and Ozarks Technical Community College) as part of our core Claretian commitment to ministering to the Youth.
