Fr. John Pereira is the Benedictine Abbot from Mount Saint Benedict Abbey in the Caribbean. He is a fan of Imagine Sisters, but has been praying for a “brother movement” for the Year of Consecrated Life. Well Fr. John, here we are.
He thinks that “One Brother Can Change The World”. Not exactly the slogan we’ll be going for, but it is so true! 23 more days until the launch date of our website. Please keep your donations going
Can’t donate? Please send us your prayers and promote our fundraising campaign to your friends and family. We are hoping to begin working on the website this week! Thanks in advance, and live the faith. Viva Cristo Rey!

Hey Project Fraternity! Whats the 411?
Our first day of our small fundraising campaign started off great. A big thank you for all of those who’ve donated. However, we are not even close to the goal yet. Let’s keep it going!
To get everyone excited, our profile photo will be changing daily! Some may even feature your favorite communities, displaying how many days we have left before our official launch date! However, we still need your help in order for us to launch the website on time.
In order to get our website off the ground, the team of Project Fraternity needs a small amount of funds to work on resources, purchase domains, computer programs, contact communities, etc. As a staff of students, we need as much time to work on this project around our classes and study schedule. As we only have about 3 weeks left, we need to meet our fundraising goal soon!
We cannot do this without you! We need your financial support in order for our movement to become a reality. How wonderful that this is beginning in time for the Year of Consecrated Life! Please donate to our GoFundMe page today:http://www.gofundme.com/e385zc
Our fundraising campaign to begin working on the website is off to a great start. Would you help us get the word out there and promote the overall movement?
With the anticipation of launching the website on the Feast of St. Francis, we are in need of funds in order to purchase the domains, essential programs, travel expenses, etc. Below is a link to a GoFundMe page, where we have a small fundraising goal to begin working on the movement. Please prayerfully consider in financially supporting this new grassroots movement and making our goal a reality.
Most importantly, send the staff a storm of prayers! Only by the grace of God, that we may bear fruits to foster the young men’s potential vocation to the consecrated Religious Life: http://www.gofundme.com/e385zc

Happy Feast of St. Maximilian Kolbe! He was a Conventual Franciscan who bravely volunteered to die in place of a stranger in the Auschwitz concentration camp. Saint John Paul II referred to him as, “The Patron Saint of Our Difficult Century.” Today, pray for St. Maximilian Kolbe’s intercession for an increase in vocations to the religious life, and for the courage as he had to say Yes to what Christ asks of you to do.

“And so for the six of you dear sisters who are making your first vows, and you, Sister Maris Stella, who is making your perpetual vows it is such a great gift not simply for your congregation but for every single one of us in this Church, this great Church because by your radical YES to Christ and your willingness to stand up for the sanctity and beauty and dignity of life in a world that is tempted to give up hope. You like all of you dear sisters remind us that hope will prevail, life will prevail, and love will have the final word. We thank you, I thank you, we all thank for saying yes and yes to the beautiful profession and beautiful life which is not easy, but the beautiful life Christ has chosen you from the moment you were conceived in your mother’s womb. Thank you for saying yes to your spouse who is the author of all life.“– Bishop Caggiano’s Homily at the Mass of Profession for the Sisters of Life
