Who We Are                                                                                En Espa├▒ol: Iesus Caritas

The Fraternity is a brotherhood formed by five to seven priests who meet once every month for Scripture sharing, contemplative prayer before the Eucharist, and a shared review of life with ample time for some friendly conversation and fellowship, usually over a meal.

East Aurora, NY
Retreat During the Month of Nazareth 

It's not too late to sign up...

The Month of Nazareth offers a priest a more extended and deeper experience of Fraternity life. While practicing the core components of fraternity life, those participating explore in a contemplative way their lives, ministry, and their relationship with God in the spirit of Nazareth. As the Directory points out, The Month is a sharing of fraternal life at every level: prayer, reflection, manual work, leisure. etc.  Ideally, it becomes a turning point in the ministry of a priest and his commitment to Jesus and to Fraternity. The Month remains the ideal for all members who belong to a fraternity. Knowing that individual fraternities can be enriched by the presence of one of its members at the Month, a goal might be to have your fraternity sponsor a member, assisting in arranging coverage for that priest's responsibilities at home

Prayer of Abandonment                                        

Father,
  I abandon myself into your hands; do with me what you will.

   Whatever you may do, I thank you:
  I am ready for all, I accept all.
  Let only your will be done in me, and in all your creatures.
  I wish no more than this, O Lord.
  Into your hands I commend my soul;
  offer it to you
  with all the love of my heart,

  for I love you, Lord,
  and so need to give myself,
  to surrender myself into your hands,

  without reserve,
  and with boundless confidence,                                                                   
  for you are my Father.
