Missionaries of the Holy Spirit

The Missionaries of the Holy Spirit (MSpS) are a Catholic religious order founded in Mexico City in 1914 by Félix de Jesús Rougier . Rougier was a priest, member of another religious order, the Society of Mary. He would receive dispensation of his vows and permission to join the new congregation 12 years later.

The order is divided into 3 provinces: Province of Mexico, Félix de Jesús Province and Christ the Priest Province. The community has 376 members in 7 countries: Mexico, United States, Italy, Costa Rica, Spain, Chile and Colombia. Its members are distributed among 57 communities, 40 of which are in Mexico. Currently, there are 5 bishops, 256 priests, 1 permanent deacon and 15 professed religious brothers in the congregation. Additionally, there are 99 members in various stages of formation toward the priesthood. Three of the most prominent members are the Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of San Antonio, Texas, Gustavo Garcia-Siller, M.Sp.S.; Eusebio L. Elizondo Almaguer, M.Sp.S., Auxiliary Bishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Seattle, Washington; Bishop Emeritus of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, Ricardo Watty Urquidi, M.Sp.S., who was one of Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller's principal co-consecrators when the Archbishop was ordained to the episcopacy in 2003 as an Auxiliary Bishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago, under Cardinal Francis Eugene George, O.M.I..
