The Missionaries of St. Charles (Scalabrinians) are a Roman Catholic congregation of religious devoted to the human and spiritual welfare of migrants. Founded in 1887 by Blessed John Baptist Scalabrini, bishop of Piacenza, Italy, the congregation initially provided assistance to Italian migrants in the Americas, but nowadays they are involved in the ministry to all migrants, and are present in all continents.
