CCO Ministries offers a lay contemplative order for women and men who feel called to make spiritual vows of poverty, chastity and obedience modeled after the contemplative life instructed by Francis of Assisi. This group is commonly referred to, within our church, as "The Chapter." These men and women live in the world, have regular jobs and families, and at the same time are not subject to the world. They seek to draw closer to the Lord by practicing these three vows and living a contemplative life in spirit. They also seek the Lord by serving their neighbor and showing God's love. Some of the spiritual disciplines that the chapter practices include weekly fasting and reading of the common book of prayer.
