Program about identity and mission of the Religious Brother

Duringthe month of September the first intercongregational program of eight Religious Institutes of Brothers dedicated to the educational mission will be held at the Mother House of the La Salle Brothers A total of forty eight Brothers from all over the world will take part in this program. The eight Institutes are:

* Edmund Rice Christian Brothers
* Marist Brothers
*  Brothers of the Christian Schools
*  Brothers of Our Lady of Mercy
*  Brother of Saint Gabriel
*  Brothers of the Sacred Heart
*  Brothers of Christian Instruction
*  Brothers of the Holy Family

The main objectives for the program are:

– To take an in-depth look at our common identity and mission as Brothers in the Church and the world today.
– To foster mutual knowledge and relationships among Institutes of Brothers.
– To have an inter-congregational formation experience that will help us to reflect, pray and live this important time of our history together.
– To share a joint formation experience that may serve as a channel for other formation activities in the future.
– To encourage the Brothers of our Institutes to meet together in order to have this discussion on the local level in our Provinces/Districts.
– To draw up materials that will aid in continuing prayer and reflection on this topic.
