Benefits of becoming a member of the Archconfraternity of Saint Philomena

Aims

The Pious Union of Saint Philomena is a prayer and apostolate association which proposes the commitment to a life lived according to the Gospel of Christ with the example of Saint Philomena; the spreading of her devotion and the education of youth into the Christian life.

Duties

Members must always wear, tied around their body or always with them, the Cord of the Saint blessed by the Rev. Rector of the Sanctuary or by any authorized priest.

Members must read, and encourage others to read, the Life of the Young Saint.

Members must recite everyday, within limits, the Little Crown of Saint Philomena.

Members are to receive Holy Communion on January 10th, May 25th and the 10th, 11th or 13th of August.

Members are to pay to the Sanctuary of Mugnano del Cardinale (Av) an annual fee, according to their possibilities.

To be a member of the Confraternity of Saint Philomena it is necessary to give your name to the Rector of the Sanctuary who will record it in the appropriate registry.

The names of the members of the various Confraternity sites of Saint Philomena, both in Italy and abroad, must be forwarded to the Sanctuary of Mugnano, to be recorded in the general registry of the Universal Archconfraternity of Saint Philomena.

Rights

For members, alive or dead, there will be a Holy Mass celebrated every second Friday of the month.

The members will share all the benefits received through prayers said in the Sanctuary.

The members that are the most zealous in bringing new members to join the universal arch confraternity and that show interest in the spreading of the cult will be called zealots

Privileges

At the conditions established by the Church (confession, communion and prayer for the Roman Pontiff) the indulgence is acquired on the day in which the Cord is worn, as long as it has been blessed.

The indulgence is acquired even on the days 10 January, 25 May, 10 August, 11 August and 13 August.
