February 2nd marked seventeen years of dedicated service by Brother Matthias Moeller, a member of the Brothers of Mercy of Mary Help of Christians Congregation since 2004.
Here is an excerpt from the Brothers of Mercy Magazine detailing Br. Matthias’ journey to this vocation:
Brother Matthias had a late religious vocation after having spent many years in the business world. He had also spent many years not practicing his faith and when he finally returned to the Church, soon found himself involved in various church committees, and as a member of his Parish Council.
His involvement in these activities facilitated his meeting a number of well respected spiritual and religious individuals who had a great influence on him. This influence coinciding with a reduction in responsibilities and obligations in his personal life, fostered Brother Matthias’ decision to pursue a religious vocation. The journey in pursuit of this vocation took a circuitous route filled with detours and doubts until, as he says, ” I finally determined that no matter how much I fought it, this is where God wanted me to be”. Brother Matthias has spent his entire religious life as a member of the Brothers of Mercy Community in Clarence. He currently serves as Community Treasurer and is a member of the Board of Directors for the Brothers’ various Operating Corporations. Please join us in wishing Brother Matthias congratulations on such a milestone! The Brothers of Mercy Campus, as well as Brothers of Mercy Mary Help of Christians, is very blessed to benefit from the wonderful service of this dedicated Brother!
