Are you drawn to a life of compassion, service, and faith? Explore the mission of the Alexian Brothers, a venerable Catholic religious order dedicated to healing, caring for the sick, and serving the marginalized.

Founded almost 800 years ago, the Congregation of Alexian Brothers embodies the spirit of St. Alexius, St. Augustine, St. Elizabeth of Hungary, and St. John of God. Rooted in the tradition of the Roman Catholic Church, the Brothers live out their vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience with a deep commitment to community life and serving those in need.

At the heart of the Alexian Brothers' mission is a holistic approach to promoting health and caring for the sick, dying, aged, and unwanted, regardless of socio-economic status. Inspired by the example of their founders and guided by the teachings of Jesus Christ, the Brothers witness the healing power of compassion and love in all their ministries.

As an Alexian Brother, one becomes part of a vibrant community of men dedicated to following Christ's call to serve the sick and the poor. Through fraternal love, prayer, and service, the Brothers support each other in their shared mission of bringing healing and hope to those in need.

What sets the Alexian Brothers apart is their unwavering commitment to their unique charism, rooted in centuries of tradition and service. From ministering to victims of the Bubonic Plague to serving the marginalized in contemporary society, the Brothers continue to live out their calling with compassion, respect, and humility.

Joining the Alexian Brothers is not just a commitment to a religious order but a journey of faith, service, and transformation. As you discern your vocation, consider the Alexian Brothers and the opportunity to become part of a community dedicated to serving God's people with love and compassion.
