Mother Lolita

Founder of the Motolinía schools and the Missionaries of Jesus the Priest

“If we love the children whom we educate, they will correspond to that love allowing us to educate them.”

Missionaries of Jesus the Priest

With Father Edmundo Reygondaud Iturbide, Missionary of the Holy Spirit, support, Dolores Echeverria founded the Congregation of the Missionaries of Jesus the Priest on January 14, 1938, in Mexico City.


The Missionaries of Jesus the Priest serve and govern Motolinía's university, Colleges and Institutes with a sole mission to educate and evangelize with a priestly spirit.

Their charisma is to honor Jesus Christ, priest and victim.

They dedicate their life to reveal the baptismal priesthood throughout the educational community, praying and working, for the increment and sanctification of priests.

All the Missionaries of Jesus the Priest's efforts are based on priestly spirituality, Jesus Christ as our mediator, merciful and faithful priest.
