Our Mission: The Jordan Ministry Team includes trained professionals who collaborate with the Diocese of Tucson in response to the Second Vatican Council's universal call to holiness and participation in the mission of the Church. The Team provides theological and spiritual formation to foster Catholic leadership and promote spiritual growth throughout the diocese. Sponsored by the Salvatorian Community, the Jordan Ministry is committed to making Jesus the Savior known and loved by all.

Our Vision: Inspired by the vision of Father Francis Jordan, the Jordan Ministry Team, composed of members of the Salvatorian community and other religious and lay persons, will promote spiritual and religious formation programs throughout the Catholic Church in Southern Arizona. The focus of its ministry will be spirituality, youth ministry and formation of lay ministers.
