St Michael Auxilium

What is the St Michael Auxilium

The Auxilium is a way for you to participate with us in our work of adoration and reparation. While the Benedictine Eucharistic Guild is the principle way that we intercede for you and your intentions, the Auxilium draws you into this work of prayer.

That is, since not everyone is able to come to the monastery, with the Auxilium, we invite you from wherever you are to pledge prayers and/or donate alms as a way of joining our ranks, or ‘enlisting’, in the battle against the enemy and in our work of reparation for our Holy Mother, the Church, Her priests, and all Her faithful. Moreover, every member of the Auxilium shares in the spiritual treasury of the whole.

How long do ‘enlistments’ last?

As the major feasts in our calendar each present their own particular grace, they also present their own particular ‘battle’, as it were. Hence, the enlistments in the St Michael Auxilium are proper to a given feast and the Triduum of adoration that will accompany it. We provide a schedule of our upcoming Triduums and you can sign up for whichever feast you would like to participate in with us. The schedule of Triduums and form to enlist can be found near the bottom of the page under the Auxilium Divisions

Is there a Suggested Donation Amount or Pledge of Prayers?

The members of the Auxilium pledge certain prayers or contribute to the Auxilium through alms. The various options are described below in the enumeration of the Auxilium’s ‘Divisions’. For those who wish to pledge prayers, each Triduum will have three principle intentions for which the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass will be offered (one intention each day).

  1. For the Reparation and Triumph of Holy Mother Church and all Her members, especially priests and religious
  2. In Honour of the Feast or for the intentions of the Saint under whose patronage the Triduum falls
  3. For the members of the St Michael Auxilium
