The Society of Saint-Sulpice () is a Catholic Society of Apostolic Life named for Eglise Saint-Sulpice, Paris, in turn named for St. Sulpitius the Pious. Typically, priests become members of the Society of St. Sulpice only after ordination and some years of pastoral work. Uniquely, Sulpicians retain incardination in their own dioceses even after joining the society. The purpose of the society is mainly the education of priests and to some extent parish work. As their main role is the education of those preparing to become members of the presbyterate, Sulpicians place great emphasis on the academic and spiritual formation of their own members, who commit themelves to undergoing lifelong development in these areas.

The Society was founded in Paris by Jean-Jacques Olier (1608–1657), an exemplar of the French school of spirituality. He was pastor of the Church of Saint-Sulpice in Paris in 1642 for the purpose of educating priests. The Sulpician seminaries, above all the one in Paris, were famed for their solid academic teaching and high moral tone. In the 18th century, they were fashionable, attracting the sons of the nobility and producing a large percentage of the French Church's hierarchy.

The Sulpician Society is divided into three provinces: France, Canada and the United States of America. The provinces in North America were created chiefly by priests and students who left the turmoil of France after its revolution.
