THE CHRISTIAN BROTHERS

The Christian Brothers form a congregation of Catholic religious men numbering
about 1,800 working in 26 countries throughout the world. Their headquarters
are in Rome and they operate through 13 different provinces / regions.

The Holy Spirit Province encompasses South Australia and Western Australia.
 

 In Oceania, the four Australian Provinces based in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, together with New Zealand and Papua New Guinea, are currently in a process of consultation through the work of the "Shaping Our Future" Committee. This work will result in a new structure (one or more entities) for Oceania within the next two to three years. A site worth keeping an eye on is:

A national planning committee is working to create new governance structures for schools currently managed by the Christian Brothers. This planning is also expected to bear fruit within two to three years. The schools currently governed by the Christian Brothers in WA/SA are shown below with their appropriate link.:

Trinity College, Perth.
Aquinas College, Manning.
CBC, Fremantle.
CBAS, Tardun.
CAC, Bindoon.
CBC, Adelaide.

Rostrevor College, Adelaide.

The major thrust of the Brothers ministries continues to be educational. Today Brothers work in different ministries around the Province. These ministries can be explored in websites such as the one below.

 The Founder of the Christian Brothers was Edmund Rice. He has bequeathed his Spirit not only to the Christian Brothers but to a wide network of people who walk many different paths in life. An  Edmund Rice Network  Newsletter is published quarterly. 

There are a variety of  Christian Brothers Publications that can be purchased by simply contacting Laura at Westcourt's.
