Side by side with thousands of professionals who work in the institutions of the Order, the Lay Camillian Family arose, an organization made up of people who are committed to living the ideal and the spirit of St. Camillus in service to the sick. It has its own statutes which were approved by the Holy See. Although it is linked to the Order and is animated by the same spirit, it has its own autonomy: it has its own directive body (the central committee) which is elected by the general assembly and remains in office for six years. By now thousands of members belong to the Lay Camillian Family and they are spread throughout the world, even in countries where Camillian religious are not present.
We are a group of Catholic people who share in the Camillian charism with our clergy and religious, committed to living the ideals and spirit of St. Camillus in service of the sick.
Our mission is to form and develop spiritual families on our campus. Families with the interest and skills to effectively help our aging and sick.
