The Daughters of St. Paul

The Daughters of St. Paul (U.S. and English-Speaking Canada province) are a congregation of women religious evangelizing in 54 countries and territories, both with the media of communication and within the culture of communication generated by these media.

Their founders, Blessed James Alberione, SSP, and Venerable Thecla Merlo, FSP, recognized how the media were dramatically changing the ways that human beings learned, built community, and even understood themselves, their world, and their God. They pioneered a lived proclamation of the Gospel within this constantly evolving culture and passed their heritage on to a family of ten Pauline congregations and associations with their diverse, yet collaborative, pastoral missions.

The sisters and their lay co-workers serve in 14 cities of the U.S., where they operate Pauline Books & Media (PBM) Centers. There they also conduct various forms of outreach and offer media-related services primarily in English or Spanish. Special services include Paulinas, a Spanish distribution center in Miami, and the Pauline Center for Media Studies in Culver City, CA (Los Angeles). They own and operate the PBM publishing house in Boston. In Canada, they evangelize through a PBM Centre and their Canadian distribution house in Toronto, Ontario.

Houses of formation are located in St. Louis (postulancy) and Boston (novitiate). The offices of the provincial government and the community's infirmary are also situated in Boston.
