Religious Brothers Day
May 1, 2024 All day
Religious Brothers Day is May 1, and offers all who know, all who minister alongside, and all whose lives have been transformed by religious brothers to celebrate and hold up their vocation and contributions within Church and society.
Religious brothers are often a “best-kept secret” of the Church, however, their contributions historically and in present-day to live and give communal witness to distinct and dynamic ways of living the Gospel are profound and prophetic. Widely, Brothers of many congregations’ ongoing ministry in the fields of education, healthcare, and social services, among others, is essential to building up a more just and humane world.
As De La Salle Christian Brothers, we live out our communities charism and mission by providing an evangelizing presence mainly through the ministry of education of young people, especially attentive to those on the margins.
We hope this Religious Brothers’ Day you are able to:
- Celebrate the gift of Religious Brotherhood within the Church.
- Give thanks for the Brothers that have impacted your life.
- Inspire and invite young men to consider the Brothers’ vocation.
