As all Institutions, the Passionists are organized into an orderly structure. We have a Superior General with his consulters from different parts of the world. Our General Superior resides in our Mother House which is located in Rome. Our present Superior General is Rev. Joachim Rego, CP from Australia. His term of office as his consulters is for six years.
We Passionists are at present in 60 countries around the world.
When a foundation in a country takes place, it is called a Mission. As the Passionists develop in that area of the world and are able to have their own leadership, it becomes a Vicariate. When it becomes almost self-sufficient, it becomes a Vice-Province and finally when it is self sufficient, it becomes a Province. For better solidarity among Passionists, in Personnel, Education and Finances, our Congregation is divided into five configurations. In USA, there are two Provinces: Holy Cross Province (us) from the Ohio River west to the Pacific and St Paul of the Cross Province, east of the Ohio River. Our Configuration is called Christ Crucified as is composed of the following countries: Canada, USA, Mexico, Jamaica, Haiti, Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay and Mozambique (a mission of the Calvary Province of Brazil)
Our Provincial Superior who is elected every four years. Since June, 2015, our Provincial Superior is Rev. Joseph Moons, CP, born in Holland but raised in the US. He is accompanied by four consulters.
