The Brothers of the Poor are an international Congregation of Franciscan brothers consecrated to God, living in the observance of the evangelical councils: poverty, chastity and obedience. We live a life in community and prayer following the tradition of penance and conversion of heart finding the freedom to follow Jesus Christ more closely.
Inspired by the Holy Spirit and the example of Francis of Assisi, and our Founder Brother John Hoever, we live in openess to God, to each other, as we serve Christ in the poor in our various ministries.
We also care about the younger generation. We develop Christian youth centres, organize exhibitions and concerts. We regularly provide inspirational books for college students and children's literature for poor school. We are sure that this is how we make a significant contribution to the development of Christian society.
