The Congregation of the Companions of the Holy Saviour is a religious order founded in 1891 at The Church of the Evangelists (Episcopal) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Rev'd William McGarvey was the founder, who later left for the Roman Rite. In 1896 a house for members of the Order (S. Saviour's House) was established at S. Elizabeth Church. The initials, CSSS, are formed from the Latin name for the Order, Congregatio Sociorum Sancti Salvatoris. The charism of the Order is Salvatorian. More recent documents of the Order use the "Savior" spelling in the name, but the original is "Saviour".
Vowed members of the Order are called Companions, and must be priests, deacons, or candidates for Holy Orders  who commit to vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. Associates, who may be men or women, commit to living a rule of life and to make Ember Day reports. Companions do not live in community. The head of the Order is referred to as the Father Master.
