To help develop a richer and fuller spiritual life in the members of this association, in their families, and in the community at large, therefore, we place ourselves under the protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God.

To dedicate the membership to the promulgation of the truths taught by the Church and to the refutation of errors concerning these truths wherever and whenever they may occur.

To unite ourselves with legitimate ecclesiastical authority in implementing the authentic renewal of the Church in accord with the Second Vatican Council.

To profess the belief that the solemn Magisterium of the Catholic Church with Peter at its head IS the supreme authentic interpreter both of divine revelation and the natural law, and is freed by Christ for all ages from the possibility of substantial error.

To profess the belief that when the Church speaks authoritatively through the Magisterium, Her teaching is binding in conscience on all Catholics, as reaffirmed by the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church promulgated by the Second Vatican Council.

To restate our unshakeable loyalty to the Pope, the Vicar of Christ and successor of Peter, and to the Bishops the successors of the Apostles teaching in communion with the Roman Pontiff, and thus to the Church, and thus to Christ. We are convinced further that this affirmation must be heard from many voices and that it must ring throughout the Church and the world.

To profess our religious assent of will and mind to the " Credo Of The People Of God " proclaimed by Pope Paul VI.
