Today we Celebrate and share Our unique life as Brothers. As a result of the Vatican document "“Identity and Mission of the Religious Brother in the Church,” it was decided by those involves int he Brother's think tank that today May 1st, 2017, the feast of St .Joseph the Worker would be designated "Religious Brothers Day" 

We ask that you keep each of us in prayer in a special way this day, and pray for vocations to our way of life.
