About the edmundites
Founded as a small “missionary band” in 19th century France, The Edmundites have always served where they are needed. Whether it was founding one of the first Catholic colleges in Vermont, working for Civil Rights in Selma, Alabama, bringing Christ’s charity to the needy of New Orleans, or serving parishes in the barrios of Caracas, Venezuela, Edmundites remain a small band of priests and brothers with a missionary zeal to serve those most in need.
We are planning for a bright future for the Edmundites. Our vision is to uphold our rich and relevant legacy through a continued commitment to our core ministries and a campaign for vocations that will inspire men who may feel called to serve God, to come and investigate religious life with the Society of Saint Edmund.
“I am often amazed and humbled by my fellow Edmundites and their depth of commitment to our mission and love for all we serve. And as much as we give, we receive so much more in return, for it’s our spirituality, common life and missionary zeal, that influences the lives of so many and helps make the world a better place.”
