    Hi, I was just wondering, how does one join the Confraternity of St. Benedict?
    God bless!

    Hi Stephen,

    Generally one joins by stating his intention to pray at least some of the Divine Office (according to the version of his choice) and providing his name and contact information to me privately so he can be included on the e-mail distribution.

    Are you local to the Philadelphia area? What is your experience/exposure to the Office?

    Hi, I pray as many Hours as I am able to(which is usually the all the Hours but Matins most of the time) . I pray from a Monastic Diurnal.
    If I may join, is there an enrollment in the Black Scapular of St. Benedict?

    God bless!

    Oh, sorry, and to answer your other question, I live in Ohio, so not too local. God bless!

    There is no enrollment in the Black Scapular. Our group is very simple and loosely organized at this point. We are happy to have you join us (at least in spirit). While our “official” Office is the 1962 Breviarium Romanum for public celebrations, most of our members pray other versions, including from the Monastic Diurnal, in their private recitation. I myself also pray an older version of the Roman Office outside of the public services we have. Welcome aboard!

    P.S. If you are on Facebook, we have a page called “Friends and Members of the Confraternity of St. Benedict”.
