Celebrate Religious Brothers Day on May 1

Religious Brothers Day

We give thanks for all the men’s communities of Brothers who are members of the RFC! 

Join us in celebrating the many ways Religious Brothers enrich the church and world on Wednesday, May 1, the feast of Saint Joseph the Worker. 

Resources to help you or your community celebrate can be found online at:

This includes a prayer card, prayer services and more. 

God of mercy and compassion,
thank you for the extraordinary life, witness, and ministry
of Religious Brothers in our Church.
In your wisdom, you have called these ordinary men
to generously serve, pray,
and share your healing love with others.
As we prepare for our annual Religious Brothers Day,
deepen our appreciation for the vocation
of Religious Brothers, their congregational charisms,
and their commitment to vowed community life.
Strengthened by our baptismal call to holiness,
inspire us to invite men
to consider religious life as a Religious Brother.
Grant all Religious Brothers the grace and perseverance
they need to proclaim your Holy Word
for the life of our Church and our world.
