The 8th December 1881 is the day of foundation of the religious order of the Salvatorians by Johann Baptist Jordan, later Father Francis Mary of the Cross Jordan. It was founded in the chapel of St. Bridget of Sweden in Rome.

Our way of life is an apostolic religious community, ie our life is as active as contemplative. After a period of formation, we profess our vows and commit ourselves to a life of celibate chastity, poverty, obedience, and apostolate. We live in community, whose center is Jesus Christ.
