Every person is called by God to do some work in the world. We grow in holiness by being attentive to His call, and by responding to it as best we can. The Catholic Church teaches that Christ calls each baptized person to one of four vocations: marriage, single life, ordained ministry, or the consecrated life. Each vocation has its own dignity and can be a pathway to holiness. At the same time, Christian tradition has always upheld the special dignity of consecrated celibacy. In light of this, Christian Brothers Academy makes a special effort to promote vocations to the Christian Brothers and to the diocesan priesthood. CBA is proud of its many graduates who have answered Christ’s call to serve the Church as brothers, priests, or deacons. The links presented on this page should assist young men to discern the movement of the Spirit in their lives.
Christian Brothers’ Contact Program
Designed to help a young man (ages 18-35) discern if Christ is calling him to serve, the program has three components: retreats, spiritual mentoring, and summer ministry. A number of CBA graduates are members of this program. If you would like more information, please email Brother Joseph Brienza at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This club is for young men interested in the Christian Brothers or the Catholic priesthood. Monthly meetings are held in the Senior Lounge. Those interested in attending may contact Brother Joseph Brienza at email@example.com.
