Society of the Divine Word (SVD)

Updated June 28, 2023

The Society of Divine Word (SVD) was founded to bring the Gospel to places in the world where it had never been preached. Today more than 6,000 Divine Word Missionaries in 80 countries continue that work. In a world that is divided by cultural, social and religious differences, Divine Word Missionaries are dedicated to encouraging people to open their hearts and share in God’s love.
