The Order of St. Michael and Mary seeks to pray under the protection of St. Michael the Archangel in the call to warfare in the spirit, in union with the intercession of Mary, Mother of God, for the glory of God through His son, Jesus Christ
Our rule of life is to follow the Lord into the call of prayer.
The Order of St. Michael and Mary is a home for those seeking a sanctuary for the expression of prayer that the Holy Spirit has expressed and formed in their lives.
It is a garden of prayer for the growth and cultivation of the ministry of prayer in the midst of the church.
It is a wellspring of prayer to water the thirst of the church for God.
It is a bulwark to empower and protect the Church that shelters us, through intercession in the spirit: most specifically, The American Old Catholic Church, the churches of the Diocese of Christ the King, the Ecumenical Communion of Catholic and Apostolic Churches, and the Church universal.
The Order is a fellowship of vowed persons seeking to express the gospel imperatives of mutual love, service and sacrifice in commitment to one another, each understanding the special call to prayer the Spirit of God has birthed in our lives.
The order of our life is:
A commitment to availing ourselves to the growth of the calling in our lives
A commitment to healing and watering the church with prayer
The Order welcomes married and single persons, laity and clergy, men and women.
