A Life of Prayer, Grace, and Community
Vocations and Membership
Professed Members: Men and Women (friars and sisters) who have bound themselves to the community through the vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, living in small communities, in hermitages, or with their families. Professed dedicate themselves to prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours twice daily, the Augustinian meditative study of scripture and theology each day, and a ministry of inclusive justice and communio. Membership is ecumenical and inclusive to anyone who has reached the age of 21 and is self sufficient regardless of orientation, marital status, or other considerations. All are welcome at our Table! Faculties for candidates who wish Holy Orders are provided by our Prior General/Bishop. Clerics from other Sacramental Churches are welcome to join with permission of their bishop. Professed have certain obligations to community functions, particularly the annual chapter each year in August.
