The Missionary Society of St. Paul the Apostle, known as the Paulist Fathers, is the first community of Catholic priests founded in the United States.
The community was founded on July 7, 1858, when four former Redemptorist priests established a new society of apostolic life around the vision of Servant of God Isaac Hecker (1819 – 1888), whose cause for beatification and canonization is now ope...n.
The four one-time Redemptorists (Fr. Hecker, Fr. Augustine Hewit, Fr. George Deshon and Fr. Francis Baker) were converts to Catholicism from Protestant traditions. They had a deep desire to help the American people understand the Catholic Church and to help the Church understand the democratic spirit of America.
These first Paulist Fathers had years of experience preaching parish missions, a form of Catholic revival preaching that sought to enliven the faithful and introduce the faith to those who did not yet know it.
