The Order of St. Camillus is a devout group of Roman Catholic men dedicated to caring for the sick, both in the United States and abroad. It takes great commitment to provide healthcare according to the precepts of the Order. However, we find a wellspring of internal strength by truly following the teachings of Jesus, who said: “Blessed are you, for I was sick and you visited me.” (Mt 25.40) and “What you have done to the least of my brothers and sisters, you have done to me.” (Mt 25.36)
To carry out His teachings, we follow in the footsteps of our Founder, Saint Camillus de Lellis. Over 400 years ago, St. Camillus encouraged his followers to love the sick as deeply and unconditionally as a mother loves her sick child. It’s still our mantra today.
We invite you to read more about the Camillians’ work. We pray that your heart may be a kind and docile one, capable of following His promptings to go wherever He may lead you, and to help in whichever way He guides you to help.
Thanks for giving us the opportunity to share a little bit about ourselves, and we look forward to hearing from you, too.
