Alexian Brothers


In our post modern world, the Alexian Brothers have continued to live out their charism by being passionately involved in Christ's healing mission to the sick and the elderly. Despite the many challenges that have threatened the existence of many Catholic Health Care Institutions, the Alexian Brothers have never wavered and never stopped sponsoring ministries to care for others.
