God calls every one of us to serve him in this life. Some are called to marriage and family life; others are called to consecrated life or to the priesthood. Whatever the state of life to which God beckons us, we all share the same fundamental vocation: the call to holiness, the call to seek a more intimate relationship with God, the call to do his will and fulfill his plan for our lives in service to others. The vocation as a lay brother is one possible path for living out this call to love, to serve, and to grow in holiness. This website is designed to help you discern your vocation by providing essential resources on lay brothers in the Church today — who they are, how they live, and whether God may be calling you to this enriching, dynamic way of life.
