On May 1, 2017, the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker, the quiet workers of our Church will be recognized. Historically, the Brothers vocation has been the least recognized vocation in the Church. Yet, the contributions of religious Brothers in the areas of education, healthcare and the arts are exemplary.
According to the National Religious Vocation website,
Following the publication of the Vatican document on the “Identity and Mission of the Religious Brother in the Church,” a committee was formed to plan the celebration, which will include prayer services and tributes to jubilarian brothers from lay and mixed communities and institutes of apostolic life, as well as other activities that are in the works.
A Prayer Card was commissioned specifically for this celebration and focuses on the vocation of brothers—a gift given by God, received by the brothers, and shared with others.
We are pleased to join in honoring our partners in ministry, religious Brothers.
