Interview of Fr. Martin Trieb O.S.B. with Mrs. Clare A. Kalkwarf D.M.
My personal motivation in founding the Brotherhood was to help the community in the area. All my life I have been involved with charity work in one way or another, but this was a way for me to be involved on a formal basis with the help of other people; to be able to network with other people and to really make an impact on the community, that is was not just a little bit of help here or a little bit of help there but it was a way that we could really make a difference for the people in the area. I saw there was so much poverty and so many social problems in the community, especially family problems, that it was a way for me to get involved and to help in a way that would make a big difference to the community.
