Read the daily quote from Pope Francis








As you know, the “SOCIETAS VERBI DIVINI,” abbreviated SVD, is the world’s largest Roman Catholic Order of Priests and Brothers who focus on missionary work. SVD in English is called the Society of the Divine Word. It was founded in Steyl, Netherlands in 1875 by St. Arnold Janssen during the church-state conflict called the Kulturkampf, which resulted in many religious groups being expelled and seminaries being closed in Germany. Since the SVD was founded in 1875, our membership has consistently grown to over 7,000 members around the globe.

In 1880, Father Arnold Janssen began to reach out to the laity by means of not only publishing magazines for them, but also by publishing books for the laity to read so that they would be inspired to work along with SVD missionaries working in the missions.

The preceding information gives us a slight idea of how much our Founder wanted to involve lay Catholics in the missionary work of the Church along with his three foundations; namely, the Society of the Divine Word (Societas Verbi Divini ‘SVD’), the Missionary Sisters Servants of the Holy Spirit (SSPS) and the Holy Spirit Missionary Sisters of Perpetual Adoration (SSPSAP). He has left this task up to his spiritual sons and daughters in the missions to work for the glory of God on this earth.

Therefore, the goal of SVD-Associates is to inspire lay Catholics to learn more of the spirituality of the Society of the Divine Word Missionaries (SVD), keep up-to-date with the lives of SVDs and engage in  prayer for the success of the SVD missions around the world. That’s why VISION and MISSION SVD- VISION: Associate is:
