Praise be to Jesus Christ! With great joy I present to you the New Constitutions translated
into English.  These Constitutions where written at a General Chapter of the Poor Knights in 2011, and approved by His Grace, Msgr. Buoncristiani in 2015.  You can read more and see his decree here.

The reader will observe that the Constitutions have many  references to specific sections of canon law next to different rules that show canonical footing on which this association rests on. Article III and Article IV are very important to understanding the aims of the Militia and these sections should guide all the activities of the association. Article XI states: “All Association members are bound to be faithful to the ideals, principles, the lifestyle and the Association's norms in relation to their position and responsibilities covered in the same,” this is important to understanding that our duties extend beyond ideals, or goals but under that of an obligation and that faithfulness to these duties will alter our lifestyles in a radical way.  To those discerning a vocation a careful reading of these sections is most important. 


Also, Article XXVII reminds us that not every matter is going to be covered by the Constitutions and that we should obey the spirit and tradition of the association. Those who are interested in reading more about specifics about the brotherhood should check the section of the website Our Holy Rules and Documents.


Below the Constitutions are attached.
