Take a brief survey to see if a vocation to the Knights of The Holy Eucharist is for you. We are stationed at Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat House and serve the Bishop of Lincoln Diocese. We serve at Masses, Healing Services, Retreats, Vocation Discernment, and Benediction, and we serve in many other ways.Our life is not easy but it is joyful and rewarding! Only those men called by Christ are suited to labor in this corner of his garden where poverty of spirit, a chivalrous heart, and a noble knightly character are essential.

Do you have an interest in becoming a religious Brother?
Hmmm... I haven't really thought about it, until now.
Yes, I've thought about becoming a Brother.
I would like to seriously look into becoming a Brother.

Yes, this expresses my feelings right now.

I have only a small interest in prayer.
Yes - prayer and the Mass are things that are really important to me, and which I appreciate.
How do you feel about wearing a habit as a religious Brother?

Wearing a habit such as the Knights’ would be just fine.

No debt at all.
I have some outstanding debt - under $5,000.

In prayer, God seems to speak to me in a positive way about religious life.
