About the Third Order
- 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 ordinarily be held on the 2nd Sunday of each month at the Priory after the High Mass (around 12:15 pm).
- Regular topics of discussion will be: Scripture, Liturgy, and the writings and person of Saint Augustine of Hippo.
- Meetings from September to February 2017 have been introductory in order to help those interested decide whether they would like to make the commitment.
