St. Josemaria Escriva

The St. Josemaria Institute was founded in 2006 to spread the message that ordinary people can find happiness by growing close to God in their daily lives. This idea lies at the heart of the teachings of St. Josemaria Escriva, a Spanish priest who founded Opus Dei and developed a spirituality through which people can form personal friendships with God through their everyday lives in the midst of the world.

Located in the suburbs of Chicago, the Institute offers its services and materials to people across the country and around the world who wish to learn about St. Josemaria and inspire others with his message of hope.

St. Josemaria believed that happiness results from the transformation of all activities into encounters with God. He believed that all people could find happiness and friendship with God, regardless of their position in the world. The St. Josemaria Institute seeks to make this message available to all those who wish to find fulfillment and happiness in their ordinary lives.


"May you seek Christ, May you find Christ, May you love Christ." - St. Josemaria Escriva
