I have called you friends…


Five men… a single calling: to serve God and His church through “tasks of practical charity”.  And so we welcome these five men who have answered that call — “welcome, brothers!”

“I have called you friends, because I have told you everything I have heard from my Father. It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you. This I command you: love one another.”
