Missionaries of the Holy Spirit
This congregation was born on 25 December 1914, in the Chapel of Roses in Tepeyac (Mexico City), by Concepción Cabrera de Armida (Conchita), a laywoman, and Félix de Jesús Rougier, a Marist Father.
The congregation seeks to extend the reign of the Holy Spirit in a world in great need of justice, unity and peace. To carry out this mission they have parishes, churches, spirituality centres, pastoral and social projects in which they try to work, giving a strong role to the laity.
