The Vows

The essential characteristic of Religious life is the three vows or evangelical counsels. The vows (temporary or perpetual) are the way or means by which a Religious Brother deliberately and freely dedicates his life to God and the Church by making a solemn promise.  All Religious men and women publicly profess three vows: Chastity, Poverty and Obedience. By professing these vows, a Brother chooses a radical way of following Jesus more closely, dedicating his whole life to God.
