New CRNJ Third Order Announced!


The CRNJ Third Order is an opportunity to become more imbued with the spirituality of the CRNJ, to socialize with others who regularly attend the Priory, and receive assistance in prayer and the sacramental life.
Meetings will be the 2nd Sunday of each month at the Priory after the High Mass (around 12:15 pm), beginning on September 10, 2017. 
Regular topics of discussion will be: Scripture, Liturgy, and the writings and person of Saint Augustine of Hippo.  
Meetings from September to February will be introductory in order to help those interested decide whether they would like to make the commitment, with first promises taken in March 2017.  
For more information, please contact Dom Alban at 304.724.6995 or crotnj at
