Angelic Warfare Confraternity
Did you know that all Christ's faithful are called to lead a chaste life, both married and single? Chastity (purity) is the virtue that properly directs the sexual appetite according to the will of God, in opposition to the vice of lust. But, how is it possible to practice this virtue well in today's culture? Join the Angelic Warfare Confraternity, a supernatural fellowship of men and women bound to one another in love and dedicated to pursuing and promoting chastity together under the powerful patronage of St. Thomas Aquinas and the Blessed Virgin Mary. The Confraternity helps its members to live chastely according to their state in life.
It is open to single and married Catholic men and women as well as youth who have received their Confirmation. This is a spiritual association of the faithful (no meetings) established by the Dominican Order, approved by the Church, and recommended by multiple popes.

The three essential practices of the Confraternity are: (1) Enrollment and Registration; (2) Wearing the blessed cord and/or medal of St. Thomas Aquinas – the patron saint of chastity – as continuously as one reasonably can for the rest of one’s life; (3) Daily prayers (two special prayers for chastity and fifteen Hail Mary's) for purity for oneself and all the members of the Confraternity.
Our parish will offer enrollment in the Angelic Warfare Confraternity on Tuesday, March 7th - the Feast of St. Thomas Aquinas on the Latin Mass calendar - after the 7pm Mass in a ceremony presided over by Fr. Christian.
