One of the ancient Orders of the Catholic Church, the Mercedarian Friars, were founded in 1218. The Friars honor the Blessed Virgin Mary, as the foundress and mother of the work of mercy begun by St. Peter Nolasco: the redemption of Christians in danger of losing their faith. This work of mercy is conducted in parishes, where faith is attacked; in schools, where empty values threaten our youths; in institutions of health care or detention, where despair is present; and in foreign missions, where social conditions threaten one´s faith. Men, between the ages of 18-40, who desire to live a life centered in Mary and her Son, to pray the rosary daily in common, live in community with one´s "brothers" based upon the Rule of St. Augustine, have a deep love for the Magisterium and in preserving the Faith by catechesis, are invited to contact the Director of Vocations.
