We, the Brothers of St. John of God, are called to witness to the people of God Christ’s healing love as expressed by our charism of hospitality, through a community of faith and a compassionate service to God’s suffering people. It is very evident that more persons are being assisted by the Order throughout the world today than ever before in its history. We know, however, we cannot handle this alone.
Today the family of St. John of God is a large one, including Brothers, staff, service users and their families, volunteers, benefactors and friends of the Order. What draws this family together and what inspires us to continue the work that John of God began is based on his vision of offering healing and hospitality to those in need.
Through your direct donations and gift of prayer, you actively support and participate in our ministry. You are part of the St. John of God family.
We invite you to walk closely with us and share in our mission. Please come back and visit us often.
We ask each of you to pray for the needs of our community, the special intentions of our brothers, the needs of those entrusted to our care and for an increase of vocations.
