Our Mission

The Society of the Divine Word is the world’s largest Roman Catholic order of priests and brothers who focus on missionary work. Our membership consistently has grown since our founding in 1875.

MANY FACES, ONE ORDER


Our founder, St. Arnold Janssen, once said, "To proclaim the Good News is the first and greatest act of love of neighbor."

Across three different centuries, we have endeavored to follow his example by becoming a part of the communities in which we live and serve—by learning their languages, adopting their customs, and making parts of their culture our own.

As a group, we cherish our multi-cultural heritage and respect the diversity of others. We seek out those people who are in need, such as the poor, the marginalized, immigrants and refugees.

We invite you to learn more about the Divine Word Missionaries of the Chicago Province, the Society of the Divine Word’s largest province in North America.
