BECOME A CONTACT
of a Christian Brother


LEARN MORE ABOUT THE BROTHERS OF THE CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS AS YOU DISCERN YOUR PATH IN LIFE.

What exactly is “A Contact” of the Brothers? Any man between 18-35 who is discerning the possibility of entering the De La Salle Christian Brothers. This is mainly accomplished by your own personal spiritual life, being accompanied by a member of our Vocation team, participating in retreats and experiences of community, as well as the educational apostolate as deemed appropriate by your level of discernment. When you establish yourself as a Contact, it’s simply that — you’ve made your first personal connection with a Brother who will begin to walk with you in the process of exploring a religious life with us.

The Contact program includes:

  • Personal connection with one Brother who will help guide you in your growth in prayer and personal spirituality.
  • Opportunity to attend an annual retreat with other Brothers and Contacts, all at varying stages of formation.
  • A closer look inside — live and work as a Brother for 4 weeks during the summer.
  • Visits to local Brothers’ communities.

MEET CONTACTS

James Brown

From Detroit, Michigan, I’m 20 years old and currently a local community college studying Homeland Security in hopes of becoming a law enforcement officer someday. When I’m not studying or hanging out with family I enjoy kayaking, traveling, and doing photography. When I’m out enjoying these hobbies it gives me a sense of relief and just to look around to see the beauty of nature God has given us. Most importantly, I became a contact to see if being a Christian Brother would be my type of profession maybe now or maybe in the future, only time will tell.

Emerson Clay

I’m a graduate of Calvert Hall College High School in Baltimore, Maryland, attending Towson University. I am a parishioner at Immaculate Conception Church in Towson and work as a Sacristan. My hobbies are playing the trumpet, biking, ultimate frisbee, and baseball. I joined the Contact Program because I seek to further my understanding and grow in my faith while striving to discover my true calling and exploring the vocation to the priesthood.

Daniel Gomez

I’m a recent graduate of La Salle University with degrees in mathematics and the computational sciences. I come from Southern Tucson, a predominately Hispanic community where the brothers recently set up post at San Miguel High School in cooperation with Cristo Rey. I dream of a united world, have visions for peace, and aspirations for being a voice for the unspoken. I value the human condition for all of its potential and grace that it may give to the world, with education serving as the guiding light for this engine. I believe touching each human soul individually, slowly, and with due patience as one of the graces of God. And I believe that every person – irrespective of their condition — can give the miracle of life through their own wisdom. The brotherhood, to me, speaks to this mission. And is why I stand with the Brothers in their quest for the education of souls.

Sam Patton

I’m a graduate of Central Catholic High School in Pittsburgh, PA, studying chemistry at the University of Pittsburgh. I’m a contact because I’ve felt inclined to become a teacher, and the Christian Brothers teach while also devoting their lives to God. This is a vocation that I think God may be calling me towards, and I would love to answer this call.
