THE CONGREGATION

Congregazione Padri Dottrinari

On September 29, 1592, at Isle sur la Sorgue, in Provence, Father César, ten priests and a deacon met to find the most effective way to teach Christian Doctrine, to draw up some rules of common life, and to ask the Bishop for a place to live together. Thus was born the Congregation of the Christian Doctrine Fathers, approved by Clement VIII on December 23, 1597.
