I was never drawn to the priesthood and so never considered a church vocation until I learned about Brothers. These were men dedicated to young people and Catholic education, and once I got to know them and their lifestyle, I felt I had found my calling. Each local community of Brothers has its own interior life of friendship with one another and the Lord, but often it's a life intertwined with a school community. Ministry to young people is sometimes exhausting, more often energizing, and always a challenge to greater creativity, deeper compassion, and a closer relationship with Christ. Sharing that ministry with my Brothers makes my life all the richer.
