Religious Brothers

 
 

As a male Religious, a Brother is a lay Christian who commits himself to Christ and the Christian community by vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience. Not only is he in service to the community, he himself lives in a religious community that centers his life.

It is from this root and from his own interior life that he is able to meet the needs of the Church in ministries such as teaching, social work, technical occupations, etc. Some religious communities are composed exclusively of brothers (e.g., the De La Salle Christian Brothers) and others may have both priests and brothers (e.g., Jesuits or Benedictines).
