Religious Order Priests

A religious order priest takes vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience. He lives out the particular charism and spirituality of his community. Each man learns the history of the community, the spirituality, the way the vows are lived according to the constitutions. The order shapes his priesthood.

Usually he lives in a community. His prayer life is determined by the spirituality of the community. Most of the communities have some time for community prayer and also expect the members to have personal prayer time.
