This list is by no means comprehensive but it does constitute a "good start". It is vital to note that EXORCISMS are ONLY performed by Priests, and with the approval of a Marshall in the Order and or the Priest's Bishop. "Healings" may be performed by Priests, Monks and lay members of the order with the approval of the Abbot. Healings and Exorcisms in the U.S.A. require a signed and witnessed consent form.

If you have interest in this type of devotion, read the rule of the order and pray about accepting the mantle. If you feel led to join this order, fill out the application and the local Abbot will contact you in a few days.
