Who We Are 

Founded in 1958 by Fr. James Flanagan, the greater family of SOLT is composed of the Clerical Society of Apostolic Life, the Sisters’ Society of Apostolic Life and the SOLT Lay Association.  Through the building up of community in prayer, graced friendships and through apostolic service to God’s people we seek to be a profound and radical expression of the union and communion which is at the foundation of the Church.

Our Charism

Disciples of Jesus through Mary, living in Marian-Trinitarian communion, serving on ecclesial family teams in areas of deepest apostolic need.

Liturgy Preparation

20th Sunday in Ordinary Time (YEAR A)

“In each Sunday Liturgy, especially in the Gospel, God gives you a mission, a work, for the coming week. He sends you forth to make it fruitful. The next Sunday you bring back to him and offer on the altar your work for the past week, and again he gives you a new mission for the coming week. In this way we live from Eucharist to Eucharist, from Communion to Communion.” - Fr. James Flanagan, SOLT Founder

The practice of liturgy prep was encouraged by our founder to prepare for the daily liturgy. This reflection and sharing can be done privately or as a small group, including your family. 

Step 1: Read the readings for the Mass

Step 2: Reflect on the readings - What is God saying to us? How can we apply it in our lives? What are we going to do to make if fruitful for this week (the video can assist your personal reflection)?

Step 3: Share your reflection.
