Explore God’s call in your life and enter into a time of discernment
“Where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.”— (F. Buechner)
Discernment is a process and is an intentional way of discovering how God is leading you to be the person you were meant to be.
You will walk alongside Brothers and learn about the values and outlook that define being Brother and how you identify with their lifestyle. If you feel a desire to become a Brother, connect with a vocation director.
The role of the vocation director is to provide information on the nature of the Brother’s vocation in the church and to help you to talk about your gifts and talents and how they relate to the values and demands of the life and mission of the Brother. This is normally done through a series of personal interviews and group meetings, with visits to local Brothers’ communities and by participation in educational ministries.
Opportunities to Discern
In exploring your vocation with us you will have the opportunity to personally connect with a Brother, meet other men discerning their vocation as Brother, participate in service experiences at the heart of the mission and get a glimpse into the community life being Brothers together.
This accompaniment takes on different forms acknowledging your needs and reality including age, level of studies, employment and your personal situation, however core elements will include regular communications with the vocation director, or other Brother, learning about the religious life as Brother, the Lasallian mission and Brothers’ community life and ministry experience of educational service with the poor.
