Brothers of St. John

Brothers of St. John - Princeville, IL
"The Community of Saint John wants to be a community of children of the Father and of friends of Jesus, gathered together by the Holy Spirit, in order to live a fully evangelical life in the footsteps of Christ in intimate communion with Him : a life of adoration and contemplation intimately close to Mary." (Rule of Life) The Brothers' apostolic activities are quite varied in order to respond to the needs of the local Churches who call them. Here are a few examples of the Brothers’ apostolates: teaching and preaching, shrines, retreat centers and guest houses, chaplaincies of schools, universities,hospitals and prisons; parishes; youth activities.
