Congregation of the Alexian brothers
Passion and commitment through the Love of Christ: The Alexianer Brotherhood are a Roman Catholic order. We live in small communities (monasteries) following the Rule of St Augustine, which forms the basis of our own constitution approved by the Church.
In our community, each person is accepted as an individual with his own strength and weaknesses. In all our work, we care for each other, work together and support each other. Through the community, our brothers are able to develop a deep understanding for one another, rooted in tolerance.
Sharing our faith - with brothers all over the world
The Alexian brothers is a Catholic nursing order looking after sick people in many locations all over the world. At the moment, the Alexian order consists of around 70 brothers in two provinces, two regions and seven countries (USA, Great Britain, Ireland, Germany, Belgium, Hungary, Philippines). In Germany, which is one of the provinces of the order, around 20 brothers live in four monasteries. The mother house of the congregation is located in Aachen, while the generalate of the order is based in Signal Mountain, Tennessee, USA.
