From 7 philosophy students who desired an authentic religious life springs a community devoted to walking in the footsteps of Saint John.
With over 400 brothers in over 40 priories, the Brothers of Saint John desire to be the apostle John in the Church.
The Brother's Priories
The Charism of The Brothers of Saint John
Rooted in the Gospel of Saint John
The brothers seek to live fully the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity, and obedience in a spirit rooted in the Gospel of Saint John. Their spirit flows from three of the features of Saint John’s holiness found in his Gospel.
By placing the spirit of the Beloved Disciple in the context of the New Evangelization, the Community of Saint John reaches out to young people and families by providing the milieu for their authentic personal growth and formation in our Catholic Faith.
Service To The Church
Our religious life is structured around contemplative prayer, study, and fraternal charity. Our charism finds its full expression in responding to the invitations from bishops to serve young people, families, develop spiritual centers, and perform works of charity.
