The Hours of Prayer

There are seven traditional hours of prayer. Members of the Society observe morning and evening prayers with scripture readings. During evening prayer (Compline), our members use the Daily Office app. They also use a list of prayer thanksgivings and petitions shared by our Society members.

Regular Gatherings

Gathering together for koinonia, prayer, and worship is part of being a community.  So, we regularly gather together in both physical and virtual locations to encourage each other in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the koinonia of The Holy Spirit

Religious Habit

Members of Christian religious orders have traditionally worn a distinguishing habit (clothing or necklace).  The habit of the Society of St. Patrick and St. Aidan is a Celtic Cross necklace (pectoral cross).  Society members are encourage to wear it whenever appropriate and at all gatherings of our Society.

Weekly Eucharist

Members of the Society are encouraged to receive Holy Communion every week. Society members are also encouraged, but not required, to participate in the Rite of Reconciliation (confession), at least once a year.
