Brotherhood of Hope
Franciscan Brothers of Peace
As Brothers, we are “spiritual marines” for the Church. Our mission to college students places us at the front lines of spiritual battle in the New Evangelization. But we also serve together in “tight units” of teamwork. We live together, pray together and serve together under the inspiration that Jesus Christ is All-Sufficient.
As consecrated men, we take lifelong vows of chastity, poverty and obedience. We live as celibate Brothers because we believe that our consecration to Jesus is enough to fulfill our deepest desires. Likewise, we are Brother-evangelists because Christ alone can satisfy the lost. The anchor of hope (Hebrews 6:19) is our symbol because only He can give lasting hope to people.

We are a community of Franciscan Brothers consecrated freely to Christ by the vows of poverty, celibacy, and obedience. We live an active life of Prayer, Brotherhood, and Service, rebuilding the Dignity of Human Life through the works of mercy. We are a public association of the faithful, following the TOR Franciscan Rule and our Community Statutes, under the gracious care of our Archbishop Bernard Hebda of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis.

Who are the Jesuits?
We are the Society of Jesus, a Roman Catholic order of priests and brothers founded half a millennium ago by the soldier-turned-mystic Ignatius Loyola. But most people call us “the Jesuits.”
With 16,000-plus priests, brothers, scholastics and novices worldwide, we are the largest male religious order in the Catholic Church. We are pastors, teachers, and chaplains. We are also doctors, lawyers, and astronomers, among many other roles in Church and society. In our varied ministries, we care for the whole person: body, mind, and soul. And especially in our education ministries, we seek to nurture “men and women for others.”
Jesuits draw on the rich tradition of Ignatian spirituality and reflection. In our retreat centers, parishes, campus ministries, and other settings, we offer these resources to all who want to discern God’s presence in their lives. At the same time, we also aim to be “contemplatives in action,” people who bring this spirituality into the wide world. That includes our work on behalf of global justice, peace, and dialogue.
Local Novitiate: Jesuit Novitiate of St. Alberto Hurtado - St. Paul, MN

Who are the Dominicans?
The Order of Preachers (The Dominicans) was established in 1216 by St. Dominic de Guzman “for preaching and the salvation of souls.” Following the Rule of St. Augustine and the Constitutions of the Order of Preachers, Dominican friars devote their lives to study, contemplation, and preaching, united by their common profession of obedience and the living of the Evangelical Counsels, in order to be effect instruments in Christ’s saving plan.
Dominican Vocation Weekends & Events
Our vocation weekends at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, DC offer an opportunity for young men who are seriously interested in the Dominican Order to experience life in one of our communities. The goal of the weekend is to allow you to step into our life to get a first-hand experience of what it is like to be a Dominican friar.
Your time at the Dominican House of Studies will give you the chance to enter into the daily schedule and rhythm of a Dominican priory, to grow in your knowledge of the history and tradition of St. Dominic and the Order of Preachers, opportunities to meet and talk with the friars, both priests and student brothers, and the time to grow closer to our Lord in the Mass, the Divine Office, and adoration.

MSP Catholic started with the realization that there are so many amazing Catholic things happening in the Twin Cities...but they aren't always that easy to find.
This is where it all comes together so that it's easier to get involved, find out what's going on outside of your network, and invite others to join you.
Our hope is to centralize and amplify the great things our groups, parishes, and individuals are doing.
Do we have everything on our site? No, but we're making connections and adding new things all the time. YOU can be a huge asset in that. If there's something that our audience needs to know about, please drop us a note so we can get more people involved in the great work of our Catholic community.
MSP Catholic is an initiative run by CEND - the Center for Evangelization and Discipleship - whose mission is to help all Young Adults find a home in a Catholic parish. This website is only half of the story of what we do. Click below to find out more.
