Jesus Christ, Eternal and Sovereign Priest
“Dedicated to Jesus Christ, Sovereign Priest, the company of the priests of Saint Sulpice, born from the apostolate of Jean-Jacques Olier, is a society of diocesan priests who have for their vocation service to those who are ordained to the presbyteral ministry.” (art. 1. Constitutions of the Society of Saint Sulpice).
The feast of the priesthood of our Lord is the most ancient of the particular feasts celebrated at the Seminary of Saint Sulpice.
