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.
