Inaugural Religious Brothers Day, May 1, 2017


National virtual event honoring religious brothers

The Brothers Think Tank has announced the first-ever Religious Brothers Day will be held May 1, 2017, on the feast of Saint Joseph the Worker. 

All religious brothers will be recognized during this national virtual event with special content hosted on yearforconsecratedlife.com.

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.

Yearforconsecratedlife.com, begun in honor of the Year of Consecrated Life, has links to other informative articles on religious brothers.

The Brothers Think Tank is a group of religious who address issues related to brothers and brainstorm ways to promote the lay religious vocation for men. The Think Tank is comprised of members from Conference of Major Superiors of Men, Religious Brothers Conference, National Religious Vocations Conference, and Religious Formation Conference.

More information about Religious Brothers Day as well as the National Symposium on Religious Brotherhood on Saturday, March 25, 2017 at the University of Notre Dame will be posted online and announced via future emails.
