May 1st is the Feast Day of St. Joseph the Worker. In 2017, this day was also established as Religious Brothers Day.
Religious brothers do many different things. They are retreat directors, teachers, professors, missionaries, nurses, administrators, canon lawyers, chaplains, campus ministers, social workers, carpenters, cooks, writers, artists, and many other things. In the photo above are three of the religious brothers that minister at the Basilica and National Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation in Carey, Ohio – Br. Randy Kin, Br. Ian Bremer, and Br. Angelo Catania.
Please take a little time to thank the Brothers in your life.
For a little more about Brothers, listen to the podcast from Br. Randy Kin – “Just a Brother?” and watch the video (part of a series about mendicant friars, especially the Conventual Franciscans and the Dominican Friars) “Friar Equals Brother.”
