Who are we?

Since 1883, the Young Men’s Institute (YMI) has been operating as a fraternal Catholic order supporting its motto of “Pro Deo, Pro Patria” (For God, For Country). Today, over 2200 members (called Brothers) honor this motto by working together on worthwhile programs and activities for our Catholic faith and communities. In addition, the YMI sponsors a variety of fun, social events (e.g., dinners, tournaments, picnics) and offers generous benefits (e.g., scholarships, death benefits) for members and their families.
