Daughters of Saint Paul
The Daughters of Saint Paul, one of the ten branches of the Pauline Family, is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. The centenary celebration will be capped with a Holy Mass officiated by His Eminence John Cardinal Tong Hon at Saint Benedict’s Church in Shatin, Hong Kong on June 21, 2015.
Fr James Alberione, beatified by Saint John Paul II on April 27, 2003, founded the Society of St Paul in 1914. The following year, he founded the Daughters of St Paul. Blessed James made use of the new platforms that the modern world offers for evangelization. Nourished by love for the Eucharist, the Pauline family has grown and now includes 1 male religious congregation (Society of St Paul), 4 female religious congregations (Daughters of St Paul, Sister Disciples of the Divine Master, Sisters of Jesus Good Shepherd, Sisters of the Queen of Apostles), 3 Secular Institutes (St Gabriel the Archangel, Our Lady of the Annunciation, Jesus the Priest), the Holy Family and Association of Pauline cooperators. Each institution is involved in different aspects of evangelization covering the media, human development, culture, pastoral activity, liturgy, vocation work, and the family.
In Macau, the Daughters of St Paul run the St Paul Bookstore in front of the Cathedral.
