The Company of the Saviour (Compañía del Salvador) is a Religious Institute of pontifical right, which was founded in 1952 by Mother María Félix Torres.
It lives the spirituality of St Ignatius of Loyola and its motto is “A Mayor Gloria de Dios” (“To the Greater Glory of God”). One of the Institute’s fundamental characteristics is its love to the Church. As such, all its nuns make a fourth vow of special obedience to the Holy Father.
The specific mission of the Company of the Saviour is the Christian education of girls and young women all over the world, which it undertakes in its own educational centres.
Today, almost 7,000 students are educated at any of the Mater Salvatoris Schools.
