Who are the Paulists? 

The Missionary Society of St. Paul the Apostle (“The Paulist Fathers”) is a community of Catholic priests who share the Gospel of Jesus Christ through mission preaching, media, campus ministries, parishes, downtown centers, the arts and more.

Led by the Holy Spirit, we focus on evangelization (reaching out), reconciliation (bringing peace) and ecumenical and interfaith relations (seeking unity).

Since 1858 the Paulists have used contemporary means to bring the Gospel message to millions of people in North America. Whether it is through book publishing, radio, television, film, the internet, our parish or Campus and multicultural Ministries, the Paulists have translated the ago old truths of the Catholic Faith into a modern context for over 150 years.
