Upon professing first vows, a man in formation becomes a Viatorian brother. (Read more about Viatorian formation here.) What is the difference between a Viatorian brother and a Viatorian priest? First, they have a lot in common:
Viatorian priests are distinguished just by their priestly ordination. This means they serve the people of God through Sacramental ministry in addition to the mission and ministry of Viatorian brothers.
Many Viatorians live their entire religious life as brothers and do not seek ordination.
Viatorians wear both formal dress with collar as well as plain clothes, and of course, priests wear vestments when celebrating Sacraments.
Viatorians often wear their formal dress for special occasions and official Sacramental or pastoral work; however, Viatorians often go to work in business casual clothing and attend social gatherings in everyday clothing.
