The “Sa-Fa Family” is formed by the Institute of the Brothers of the Holy Family and the people and associations that share their spirituality and mission in the different levels of involvement and commitment (XXXVI General Chapter, Guideline no. 7).
He links which brings us together in Jesus, Mary and Joseph
Inspired by the life and the writings of Bro. Gabriel Taborin, and in continuity with its history, the Institute of the Brothers of the Holy Family has presented the Holy Family as the inspiration of the life style of the Brothers and, to anyone willing to share in their spirituality and in their mission, the life of Jesus, Mary and Joseph will remain their point of reference … “This Nazarene and Taborinian spirituality will animate their whole existence” (Constitutions 7).
Formation is an essential theme in consecrated life. Our Institute must give primary value to vocation animation and formation because our future depends on new vocations and on the formation of the Brothers (Cf. C 153).
