FRANCISCAN BROTHERS of the Holy Cross
IN CRUCE VICTORIA The Congregation of  Franciscan Brothers of the Holy Cross is a religious community of vowed men who share in the Mission of Jesus by serving the needs of people and the Church in the  tradition of St. Francis.
WHO WE ARE


WHAT IS A BROTHER

We also see ourselves as a member of God’s family, working with our brothers and sisters in the Church and community.

Community is the key as a Brother attempts to minister and affirm others. To effectively answer God’s call, he needs support from others who have made a commitment of fraternal life, communal living and service to God’s people.

The essence of Brotherhood is not determined just by our work or daily activities, but by the lifestyle we live with others in community.

A Franciscan Brother:

  • is a witness to Christ’s presence – as our Brother – through the message of the Gospel.
  • serves joyfully as a living reminder of Christ’s presence in the world
  • chooses freely to live in a religious community
  • embraces special vows -- chastity, poverty, and obedience -- that enables him to live the Gospel and freely serve the Church and each other
  • strives to be like Jesus, who was vulnerable, loving, challenging,
    inspiring, and most of all…human
