The Third Order tau cross



Tertiaries can be men or women, ordained or lay, married or single, who--although following ordinary professions--are called to a dedicated life of service to our Lord through prayer, study and work.

Rule of Life

Tertiaries dedicate themselves through a nine-point Rule of Life, to be instruments of God's Peace. During the 2 1/2 years leading to profession, members report monthly to a counselor. Throughout their vowed life, Tertiaries work with a spiritual director and meet, where possible, with local fellowships.
