Provincial Welcome

Dear Friends of the Stigmatines,

Welcome to our newly established BLOG site. Thanks to our dear friends and Lay Associates, Tereza & Vicente Lopes, we are able to communicate with you on this new level.

The Stigmatines endeavor to serve the Church through service to the Bishops of the world. Here in the United States, the Province of the Holy Spouses, Mary and Joseph, we have many ministries: parish ministry, retreat ministry, seminary formation, counseling and foreign missions. We ask you to pray that the Lord of the Harvest will send us candidates for the Stigmatine Priesthood and Religious Life.

Thank you for joining us as together we give honor and praise to our God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


Father Gregory J. Hoppough, C.S.S.,
Provincial Superior
