We are involved in college campus ministry and men's retreats and conferences. We are active at secular university campuses as well. The charism of the brotherhood is the all-sufficiency of Jesus Christ, both as the foundation and directional force for a community life of strong fraternal bonds and as the prime motivation for a life of service to the spiritually poor.
