Vocation – Choose this Way of Life

“And Jesus said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” (Luke 10:2)

Have you ever wanted to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, heal the sick, and educate the illiterate?

As CFIC brothers, we find God in others, the sick and orphans. Our small but dynamic and friendly religious community with great family spirit may be what and God has in His plan for you.

The Call to the Religious Life – A call to holiness

What is the difference between a diocesan priest and a religious? A diocesan priest serves the Church within a well-defined area of a diocese. He usually serves the people of his parish as a parish priest. A religious, on the other hand, is a member of a community which goes beyond the geographical limits of a diocese.  He lives within this community of men for mutual support and accomplishment of some particular work called ‘charism.’ ‘Charism’ means a religious community’s particular spirit, way of life and focus which grows out of its history, traditions and founder.

For the brothers of the Congregation of the Sons of the Immaculate Conception, this ‘particular work or charism’ is to continue the work of our Founder Blessed Luigi Maria Monti through the many missions and communities operating worldwide.

In North America, the brothers are actively involved in caring for the sick through hospital chaplaincy and youth ministry through schools and parishes.

We invite you to join us in serving the least of God’s children throughout the world.

If you need help to prayerfully consider whether you have a calling into the religious life in the Congregation of the Sons of the Immaculate Conception in North America, please contact vocation Director: vocation@cficnorthamericandelegation.com
