Father Philip Merdinger, B.H., is a priest of the Archdiocese of Boston. In addition he is the founder of the Brotherhood of Hope and chaplain for the National Fellowship of Catholic Men. Ordained for the Archdiocese of Newark in 1964, he moved to the Archdiocese of Boston in 1995. Father comes to us with extensive experience and expertise in retreat work. He has ministered in retreat work throughout the country, and the Brotherhood of Hope sponsors retreats for men in Massachusetts and Florida, and offers spiritual support to Clergy, Religious, and Seminarians. Fr. Philip is also a popular speaker at Catholic men's conferences. The Brotherhood of Hope, established in 1980, is a canonically recognized Catholic community of brothers and priests consecrated to Christ, dedicated to evangelization, and committed to a life together as a spiritual family. Their focus is a deep personal relationship to Jesus Christ, our All-Sufficiency, lived in the vows of chastity, poverty and obedience. A major part of its mission is an outreach to Catholic men and to young men and women at several college campuses. For Catholic men, the members of the brotherhood facilitate the development of parish-based men's groups, minister at men's conferences, and lead retreats.
