Francis Jordan SDS
Father Francis Jordan was born into a poor family in a small village in the southwest of Germany on the 16th June 1848. He travelled extensively through Europe and the Middle East working with great dedication and faith to win the world for the Saviour. Father Jordan is the founder of the Society of the Divine Saviour (SDS) or the Salvatorian Order of Priests who seek to know, to love and to serve God.
Father Jordan died on the 8th September 1918 in the care of the Daughters of Charity in Tafers, Switzerland. His idea of working closely with lay people to develop their faith is more relevant than ever today. The process of beatification and canonisation continues for Father Jordan and his feast day is celebrated on the 8th December.
