The Piarist Fathers – Padres Escolapios


The Piarist Fathers is a religious order of priests and brothers.  We were founded in Rome (Italy) by Saint Joseph Calasanz in 1617.

Our mission is the Christian Education of Children and Youth.

The Piarist Fathers arrived in the U.S.A. in 1949.

As Piarist Fathers, our motto is “For the Glory of God and the Service of our Neighbor.”
