The Missionaries of St. Charles-Scalabrinians are committed to the promotion of human dignity
and human rights of migrants, including their faith and cultural values. We are committed to
promote the total salvation of mankind, leading migrants in particular, to a rediscovery of faith
in their lives with a longing for dignity and justice.
We are called to be migrants among migrants, sharing in their journey, their struggles and their hopes, inspired by the example of Jesus. "In truth I tell you, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me." (Matthew 25:40)
Who We Are
The Missionaries of St. Charles-Scalabrinians are an international community of religious missionaries
dedicated to the service of migrants of differing cultures, religions and ethnicities. We are a
religious apostolic community called by God to share in the mission of the church by helping migrants
discover and carry out the plan of salvation during human migration and within their lives.
The Congregation was founded on November 28, 1887 by Saint John Baptist Scalabrini (1839-1905), Bishop of Piacenza, Italy.
What We Do
Our primary focus is to be migrants with the migrants and to welcome, protect, promote and integrate
migrants, providing special priority for the poorest migrants. In accordance with the will of the
Church, the institutions of our Founder, and the history of migration, we re-affirm our preference
to serve those migrants who are acutely living the drama of migration.
We promote total salvation through spiritual assistance and facilitate human, social and cultural assistance, preventing the causes of evil that afflict migrants.
