This institute celebrates the traditional Latin Liturgy (Tridentine Mass) according to the rites of 1962, as promulgated by Pope John Paul II's motu proprio "Ecclesia Dei" of 1988. The members live in community under the Augustinian Rule, taking vows of stability, conversion of life, obedience, and common life.[1]

The institute was founded by Bishop Raymond Leo Burke and Dom Daniel Augustine Oppenheimer, Prior.[2]
