Who We Are

The Fraternity is a brotherhood formed by five to seven priests who meet once every month for Scripture sharing, contemplative prayer before the Eucharist, and a shared review of life with ample time for some friendly conversation and fellowship, usually over a meal.

How to Form a Fraternity

Forming a Fraternity

Prayer of Abandonment                                        


  I abandon myself into your hands; do with me what you will.
   Whatever you may do, I thank you:
  I am ready for all, I accept all.
  Let only your will be done in me, and in all your creatures.
  I wish no more than this, O Lord.
  Into your hands I commend my soul;
  offer it to you
  with all the love of my heart,

  for I love you, Lord,
  and so need to give myself,
  to surrender myself into your hands,

  without reserve,
  and with boundless confidence,                                                                   
  for you are my Father.
  Blessed Charles de Foucauld
