Brothers and sisters in the Fraternity of Blessed Charles of Jesus

I introduce to you the medals and pins of Br. Charles for the upcoming Centennial year starting December 1st, 2015.

I have taken the initiative to produce these medals, lapel pins, and Jesus Caritas crosses.  All these items were made in China, in very large quantities to keep the price low, so that anyone, any where in the world, can afford to have one.

Regional Assembly of the North American Fraternities: June 27th in Brooklyn

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

On behalf of the Brooklyn Fraternities, I would like to remind you that the next Regional Assembly for the North American Fraternities will be held on Saturday, June 27th in Brooklyn, NY. This meeting will be a one-day event and will be held at the Transfiguration Parish where the spirituality of Nazareth has en-rooted itself more than 40 years.

Please see the attached document for many organizational and thematic details. The local organizing committee at Transfiguration asks that you register as groups (fraternities), although individual registrations will be considered.

Onalis will be touching base with everyone regarding housing arrangements for traveling individuals.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact us at any time.

We hope many of you will be able to join us this year. As we approach the much-awaited Centennial of Brother Charles’ death (2016), this annual meeting becomes a wonderful opportunity to invite someone new and discover the meaning of Fraternity.

In brotherly service,

Onalis and Ciro

Brooklyn June 27th
