The Society of Saint Edmund is a religious community of Roman Catholic priests and brothers founded in 1843. Our mission is to serve where the need is greatest, a credo that has led us to four core ministries: Social Justice, Education, Spiritual Renewal, and Pastoral Ministry. We seek to serve as Jesus did, and to make known the love of His Sacred Heart for all. Our members, called Edmundites, direct a thriving campus ministry at Saint Michael's College, run retreats at Saint Anne's Shrine, feed the hungry and homeless in Alabama, counsel recovering alcoholics in 12-step programs, and make a home for people in the Catholic Church. Our ministries are diverse and are carried out with the intention of making God known, and loved, in deep and meaningful ways.
