Considering the Brothers?

As you make your way through the sea of vocational possibilities, remember the Brothers—whose worldwide mission is stronger today than at any time in our 300+ year history.

RELAN-Young-Bros-Gather-April-2013-(4)Just as it was during the late 17th century, the Brothers continue to dedicate their entire lives to the ministry of teaching, to the students entrusted to their care, to each other, and (through all of these) to God.

For the Brothers, the ministry of education is the work of Jesus with the young people of today. Daily meditation, community prayer, liturgy and the life-giving support of religious community enable the Brothers to infuse the world of education and the young with the Gospel.

The Brother is a member of a community of men who are committed to live and work together for the educational service of the young and the poor. The Brother is a man who has answered God’s call to give himself completely to Jesus Christ through the mission of education, especially to the poor and needy.
