Maintain a daily prayer rule, morning, and evening.
Daily readings of the Holy Scriptures, the lives of the Saints, the Psalter or other Orthodox writings.

WHY IS THIS WORK SO IMPORTANT?
Surrounded by distortions, excesses and confused images of masculinity, men in the West find themselves in an existential crisis. With the guiding wisdom of Fr. Hans Jacobse, the St Paisios Brotherhood looks to renew a spirit of brotherhood, accountability and mentorship towards an authentic vision of the Christian man.

Why the St Paisios Brotherhood?
The fragmentation of the family and dissolution of the anchors of faith have made it harder than ever for young men to grow into adults. The St. Paisios Brotherhood is a clear light shining in these dark times.
Dr. David Bradshaw
Professor of Philosphy
Author of "Aristotle East and West"
The men of the St. Paisios Brotherhood are 100% committed to following Christ and doing His will for their lives.
They know that men cannot stay the course alone, and that being isolated as men in this culture leads to failure.
Teaming up with others is the key to long-term success in meeting our goals.
The St. Paisios Brotherhood stands as a city on a hill for a generation of men lost in the spiritual struggle.
It is led by a team of Orthodox clergy and laymen committed to helping all men who come with a desire for virtue, truth and to live a life of repentance and the Orthodox Faith. The SPB is not just helping men lead better lives in this world; it is preparing them for the age to come and saving their souls."
The St. Paisios Brotherhood is a significant source of encouragement, energy, and accountability for me.
As a recent convert to Orthodoxy the Brotherhood provides me with consistent access to a network of men who meet regularly helping each other rise out of the mire of confusion and toxic shame, that naturally accompanies life in western world.
