We are called to Proclaim Jesus our Saviour   

Pilgrimage in the footsteps of our Founder


Well it is now only two days until 40 Salvatorian Collaborators from Australia embark on the inaugural pilgrimage organised by their Leadership Team. By travelling “In the Footsteps of Father Francis Mary of the Cross Jordan” the Salvatorian Collaborators would like to mark the end of the Year of Father Jordan and to thank God for the gift of his remarkable life. Following the footsteps of Fr Jordan, they will also have an opportunity to deepen their love for this extraordinary person and priest.

The Spiritual Director is Fr Leonard Macionczyk SDS who will look after the spiritual experiences and also share his knowledge of and love for Fr Jordan.

 The Pilgrimage Director is Anne Cullender. Anne is the Leader of the Salvatorian Collaborators in Australia and together with Fr Leonard represented Australian Salvatorian Collaborators at the gathering of the Lay Salvatorians held in Vienna in 2008. She has a Masters Degree in Catholic Spirituality and is currently Principal Schools Advisor for the Catholic Education Office in Geraldton.

“Moved by a deep experience of God, the situation of the Church, and the reality of his time, Father Francis Mary of the Cross Jordan was filled with an urgent desire that all people know the one true God and experience fullness of life through Jesus the Saviour…” (Charter of the Salvatorian Family).

The Australian Salvatorian Collaborators are fulfilling the wishes of Fr Francis Jordan by undertaking this pilgrimage.
