As an Order of the Eastern Catholic Church, we are formed in its tradition, discipline and spirituality and by the writing of St. Basil and the other Eastern fathers. We praise God in the Divine Liturgy, in the Divine Office (the liturgical prayer cycle of the Church, which includes Matins and Vespers), and in a personal prayer life. Our lives of personal prayer are integrated with our communal prayer as we celebrate the liturgical day and the festal cycle of the Eastern Church.
