Origins of the Saint Raymond Nonnatus Foundation
We were founded in 2015 started by the Mercedarian Religious Order as an expression or application of their fourth vow in to "give their lives for those in danger of losing their faith".
The St. Raymond Nonanatus Foundation for Freedom, Family, and Faith is a 501-C3 non-profit organization included in the IRS group exemption for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (pg. 1083, 2018).
As a means of continuing to give specific expression to the Mercedarian’s redemptive charism, the Order dedicated several years of prayer and dialogue during their formation assemblies. Through the grace of the Holy Spirit and the intercession of St. Raymond Nonnatus, it was recognized the breakdown of the family as the major source of spiritual erosion in our day and time. The fruit of their discernment led to the establishment of the St. Raymond Nonnatus Foundation for Freedom, Family and Faith.
