Daughters of Saint Paul

About us

We are an international Congregation of religious women committed to evangelization through witness of life and proclamation of the Gospel with the means of social communication.

We were founded in Alba, Italy on June 15, 1915 by Fr. James Alberione, whose prophetic vision and passionate love for the word of God propel the congregation to always seek new ways and places to evangelize.



Ever attentive to the signs of the times, Fr. James Alberione intuitively understood the special role woman could play in society and in the Church. He also grasped the unique contribution that consecrated women could make to evangelization in the far reaching and complex world of communications.

The Daughters of St. Paul is one of the five religious congregations founded by Fr. Alberione which, together with four aggregated Institutes and the Pauline Cooperators, make up the Pauline Family.
