Brothers of the Christian School

  • Luke Salm, F.S.C. Manhattan College


The Brothers of the Christian Schools, popularly known in the United States as Christian Brothers, have made numerous significant contributions to the development of Catholic education. Building and staffing schools, colleges, and orphanages, producing textbooks and catechetical materials, advocating for the poor, and creating new models of Catholic education are among their many successes. Manhattan College, St. Mary’s Press, and San Miguel Schools are all products of this community of Catholic educators.
