The Order was founded in Belfast in 1915 by James K. Canon O'Neill. He was greatly influenced by the social teaching of the Church and particularly the encyclical "Rerum Novarum".

James K. O’Neill was a native of Ballypatrick, Ballycastle, Co. Antrim where he studied at the Classical School in Downpatrick. He enrolled in St. Malachy’s Diocesan College in February 1872 and entered Maynooth in September 1875. In 1906 he was appointed parish priest of the Sacred Heart Parish, Oldpark Rd., Belfast.
