A community of Roman Catholic priests and brothers were founded by Saint Anthony Claret in 1849. Their ministries are highly diverse and vary depending on the needs of the area. They focus on seeing life through the eyes of the poor and respond to the biggest need at the time. They have a special devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Their formal title is the Congregation of Missionaries, Sons of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary, but they are popularly known as "the Claretians". The aim of the Congregation is to seek in all things the glory of God, the sanctification of our members, and the salvation of people throughout the world, in keeping with our missionary charism in the Church. Today Claretians are working in a variety of our ministries like parish work, campus ministry, hospital chaplaincy, preaching retreats, Prison ministry, Taking care of the HIV/AIDS patients, Family Apostolate, spiritual direction, Counselling youth programs, and religious publications
