Christusträger Bruderschaft


The old monastic rule »Pray and Work« is foundational for us. From the start our Sisters and Brothers have been engaged with the poor in developing countries.


At present some Brothers work in a rural hospital in Vanga (Congo). Another team of Brothers provides medical aid in Kabul (Afghanistan) and trains young people in metalwork. This engagement continues to be important for us but we want to support people in Europe too.

In Dresden two Brothers live in Community in a local parish, in ordinary employment, involved in church life and inviting people to join them in prayer.

The initial spontaneous hospitality that arose as friends came to visit has developed into a ministry with guests. We now offer rooms for retreat groups and individual guests in our houses in Triefenstein and Ralligen.
