Community Life

Community Life 2016-02-06T15:22:06+00:00

“All love draws life from the covenant between God and His people; our community reflects this covenant, multiplying it in self-respect and brotherly love. We respect each other’s gifts and encourage each other to grow in kindness. Our relationship with one another and with the God who loves us impels us to the generous service of our neighbors.”

-Constitutions of the Franciscan Brothers

As our prayer life strengthens us for life together in community and ministry, our life together in community also strengthens us as we go forth in generous service of others.

Our common life together gives witness to our vocation as Religious Brothers.  We pray together, eat together, and recreate together as we strive to be Brothers to each other.

Strengthened by the bond we share as Brothers, we are then sent forth to be Brothers to those we encounter each day after the example of Jesus our Brother.

LET THE SISTERS AND BROTHERS ALWAYS BE MINDFUL THAT THEY SHOULD DESIRE ON THING ALONE, NAMELY ...

THE SPIRIT OF GOD AT WORK WITHIN THEM.
