Who We Are
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.

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,
and with boundless confidence,
for you are my Father.
Blessed Charles de Foucauld
Rev. Paul M. Esser (1931 - 2015)
The National Office has received news of the death of Fr. Paul Esser. Paul served the Lord as a priest of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. He was a man of great peace who through his pastoral ministry led many people deeper into the Mystery of God's love. He served our Fraternity as National Responsible from 1994 to 1999.
Priests of the Fraternity are encouraged to offer a Mass for Fr. Paul.
Fraternally in Christ,
Fr. Jerry Ragan
