May 1 Marks First Religious Brothers Day

May 1, 2017 — Today, on the feast of Saint Joseph the Worker, the Catholic Church is also celebrating the first-ever Religious Brothers Day.

The day offers an opportunity to celebrate the gift of religious brotherhood to the church and the world; to give thanks for religious brothers in our lives and the impact they’ve made; and to inspire and invite young people to consider the consecrated life and a vocation as a brother.

In honor of Religious Brothers Day, Pope Francis sent a message to America’s communities of brothers through his Secretary of State, Archbishop Christophe Pierre: “Conscious of the immense contribution made by generations of brothers to the growth of the church in the United States through their schools, hospitals and other forms of religious and social outreach, the Holy Father trusts that this day of recognition will confirm them in their distinctive witness of consecrated life and their generous service to God’s Kingdom.”

In the Society of Jesus, Jesuit brothers serve the church in hundreds of apostolates. Meet a few of them in the video below. To learn more about Jesuit brothers in Canada and the U.S., click here.
