Religious Orders


#1

Does anybody know of any religious orders (brothers and priests) that dedicate their lives to serving the poor? I know there are the Franciscans, but I am looking for a different order.


#2

Missionaries of the Poor


#3

Alexian Brothers.

#4

missionariesofthepoor.org/


#5

The Salesians do a lot of work with poor and at-risk children. You might give them a gander.


#6

The Institute on Religious Life is a good place to search. This might be helpful.

#7

Missionaries of Charity is my favorite order, but I know you already are aware of them.


#8

The Jesuits do quite a bit of missionary work.

#9

You should take a good look at the Capuchin Franciscans. Always look at what an order really does, don’t just look at their website (i.e. some websites look better than others)

Peace,
