The USA Province has a lengthy history of buying “unique” properties that most people would NEVER think about for religious usage. We turned them into religious places anyway! One such property was in Menominee, Michigan. In this small city on the border of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and the state of Wisconsin, a set of buildings near the county’s airport saw a variety of uses over the years – not just before the Salvatorians purchased it, but even while we owned it!

Check out the story of Jordan Seminary (as well as the other purposes this property was used for) at THIS LINK.

Artwork from the Salvatorian 
China Missions - late 1940's

Salvatorians ministered in the Fukien District of mainland China from 1922 to 1949, at which time they were forced to leave the mainland. They lived on the Macao peninsula until 1954, when it became more prudent to send the Chinese seminarians to schools in Rome. In 1957, Salvatorians returned to China, this time to the island of Taiwan. These four art pieces (available for free download) come from our missions in the Fukien District. They were created in the late 1940's.
