Mission

Encouraged by the gift we have received, we consecrate ourselves to God and dedicate ourselves to serving the Church in the assistance for the sick and those in need, with a preference for the poorest.

In this way we show that the compassionate and merciful Christ of the Gospel is still alive among men and we work with him for their salvation. When he called us to be Hospitaller Brothers of Saint John of God chose us to form a community of apostolic life, and so it is our desire to live out in communion with each other the love of God and our neighbor.

We feel that we are brothers of all mankind and we dedicate ourselves chiefly to the service of the weak and the sick: their needs and sufferings touch our hearts, and lead us to alleviate those needs and sufferings and to work for the personal development and advancement of such people.

As living members of the church, we seek to manifest the supremacy of God’s love and we wish to attain the perfection of love for God and our neighbor, through the unceasing exercise of all the virtues, the public profession of the vows of chastity, poverty, obedience and hospitality, fidelity to the spirit of the Rule of Saint Augustine, and observance of the Constitutions of the Order.

What year was that photo taken?

Congratulations!

It looks like it's probably before 1970 - mid to late '60s

.....possibly, even 1963!

One of my high school classmates has a son who has a drug affliction. He is having difficulty adhering to his treatment program. I told her to pray and ask Br. Mathias for his help. From the stories I've heard about Br Mathias, I know he loved the poor and had compassion for those who suffer from substance abuse.

Continue with the good works of mercy.

Happy brother Matthias day Uncle Maurice x x looking down on us all from heaven
