Our Lady of Guadalupe Franciscan Province The Spirit of
Saint Francis has been kept alive through the centuries by the
work of many men and women who have committed themselves
to a ministry that promotes Franciscan values. The Province of
Our Lady of Guadalupe has remained faithful to their Franciscan tradition by their commitment to the missions of the
Southwest among the Native Americans: Navajo and Pueblos,
the Hispanic and Anglo population. The variety of ministries has
made us a truly unique Franciscan Province. If you sense that
God might be calling you to the religious life, this is a wonderful
opportunity to discern your vocation among the poor, among
those who are considered outcasts, and among those who thirst
for God’s love and justice. Come; share, dream, love—Join us!
God bless you. Vocation Director for OLG Vocation Office,

Presentation Brothers (F.P.M.) The Presentation Brothers
are an international Roman Catholic Congregation of religious
brothers working in several countries. We are men who believe
that Jesus Christ is calling us to serve him and his people in a
radical way. We live our baptismal promises through sharing
all that we earn and by devoting our lives to the service of
people. We take three vows: chastity, poverty, and obedience
and we live together in small groups called communities
where we support one another and live out this challenging
lifestyle. We are teachers, social workers, pastoral workers,
chaplains. Regardless of the work we do, it is all “Ad Majorem
Die Gloriam”--for the greater glory of God. Today we work in
Ghana, Nigeria, West Indies (St. Lucia and Grenada), USA,

Priests of the Sacred Heart (S.C.J.) We are an apostolic
international congregation of Brothers, Deacons, and Priests
inspired by the mystery of God’s love expressed in the heart of
Christ. Fr. Leo John Dehon, our founder, was convinced that
the best way to respond to our experience of God’s love is by
reaching out to those around us and helping them to experience
that same love in their own lives. This often means addressing
unjust situations and circumstances that prevent people from
reaching their full potential. Much of our work in the U.S. is
with the poor and working class. Foreign missions are available.
We prefer candidates 18-40 (will consider to age 45) with religious and/or social involvement, a solid academic background,
and appropriate work history. Vocation Director, P. O. Box 206,

and brothers, our mission is to proclaim the Good News of
plentiful redemption to the poor and most abandoned. Our
work in parishes, retreat houses, parish missions, and foreign
countries, as well as special apostolates, e.g. migrants, prisoners,

failures, and our talents and material goods in service to the
Gospel. For more information, visit our website: http://www.

Servants of Charity (S.C.) Our priests and brothers strive
to imitate Jesus, the Good Samaritan, by bringing the Father’s
healing love to the suffering in body and spirit. Founded by
Blessed Louis Guanella in 1908, we are now represented in
19 countries. Our Province (United States, Philippines, and
India) provides “Bread and Lord” especially to people with
developmental disabilities as well as serving abandoned children, the elderly, children in need, and parishes. The Servants
of Charity also have a ministry known as the Pious Union of St.
Joseph, an association of the faithful praying for the suffering
and dying. We seek men hungry to live a life of personal love of
God expressed in prayer, community life, simplicity, hospitality,
compassion toward the suffering, and in communion with the
teaching and tradition of the Catholic Church in its entirety. We
offer a life of “Prayer and Suffering” lived within a community of
sinners who want to be saints. Fr. Dennis M. Weber, S. C., 1795
