Some of our brothers are priests and work in parishes or chaplaincies to schools, third level institutes, hospitals and prisons where they provide pastoral care, compassionate support, and the sacraments to people, often at very tough times in their lives. Other brothers work in different initiatives for the poor and the homeless, in retreat giving and preaching, in writing and studying, in sharing our tradition of meditation and contemplative prayer with others, or in creating sacred art, or simply gardening, cooking and being a welcoming presence to all those who come to our friaries seeking advice, prayer and support. For us, the title of the job isn’t important, what is essential is that we are “brothers” to all we meet while we work. Whatever your gifts are there is a home for them in the “brotherhood”
