Los Misioneros Josefinos en la Diócesis de León
1905-1938
Tuvieron tres centros misioneros: los Castillos, Irapuato y Silao. Su vocación misionera los impulsó a recorrer pueblos y parroquias circunvecinas para dar misiones y ejercicios. Su vocación de educadores los llevó a abrir colegios para niños pobres y escuelas apostólicas para formar misioneros.

Los Misioneros Josefinos, con ocasión de su Ier Capítulo provincial, tributan un homenaje de gratitud a la Diócesis de León donde floreció el carisma josefino para bien de la Iglesia.
¡Gloria a Jesús, María y José!
