The Pius X Secular Family is an apostolic Family founded by Father Henri Roy, in Manchester, New Hampshire (United States) in 1939. Consecrated and associate members try by 100,000 means that Jesus be better known, loved and served. Through their involvement in different areas, they become apostles of men and women, young and old. They have just one concern: that the Gospel be proclaimed through their life!
Members of the Pius X Secular Institute received this apostolic enthusiasm from their founder, Father Henri Roy. By joining with young men and women involved in the Young Catholic Worker movement, Father Roy founded the Pius X Secular Institute to give to the Church a new apostolic Family specifically formed for evangelization. With Father Roy, these young people from the first generation felt just one yearning: to dedicate their whole life to the cause of Christ among the poor of the working class.
