The Congregation of Christian Brothers was founded by Blessed Edmund Ignatius Rice (1762-1844), a lay businessman, in 1802. He began his work in Waterford, Ireland, where his particular concern was the plight of Catholics who had been excluded from education because of the penal laws in force at the time. By the end of the 19th century the Congregation had grown steadily in membership and Brothers had moved to many different countries around the world. Today, Christian Brothers live in a faith community. They engage with people in their daily lives, often in the context of education and faith journey, but also as community workers, youth workers, and teachers. They are committed to being with poor people in their struggles, and in their desire for a better life. A Brother is committed to: spiritual search, life in community, and service of others, especially the poor. Contact us to learn more. Member of Compass.
