The Congregation of the Brothers of Christian Instruction of Plöermel is a lay congregation of pontifical right, founded by Jean-Marie de la Mennais and Gabriel Deshayes.

Our Congregation brings together men who, responding to a special call of the Holy Spirit, pledge themselves totally to God by the public profession of the vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience in a community of life and of apostolate in the service of God’s people, especially youth, with a preference for the poor, through Christian education and instruction.
