Question about religious orders


#1

Hello.
I wish to ask, if is there any religious institute/orders for males, more directed toward helping the poors, human charity, than the evangelization, preaching, teaching the peoples?

The Missionaries of the Poor, founded by Fr. Ho Lung, although it incorporates all of the above, very much has serving the poor as its main focus:

Here are some outstanding links…to get you started…hopefully will answer your basic questions and give some new insights…then you can focus more precisely by doing further research,contacting Orders through their websites.

I pray that the Holy Spirit guide you…that you will be docile to The Spirit’s inspirations…and that you will be a “holy sponge” and soak up all the graces of discernment that will come to you.
