Many countries, many peoples, many languages
The picture above shows the French lay woman, Jeanne Bigard whose dedication and commitment to providing priests to new Catholic diocese around the world was the inspiration and founder of the Society of St Peter. The Society worldwide now supports over 30,000 major seminarians and 10,000 religious. The SPA continues to bring Christian missionaries throughout the world in communion with each other and tries to ensure that good vocations are not turned away through lack of financial resources. The SPA also enables us to take up our duty as missionaries and followers of Christ to make both spiritual and financial sacrifices, continuing the work begun by a young woman over 100 years ago.
