Additional observations The Brigittine community was founded in 1370 by St. Birgitta of Sweden; its monks existed from the 14th to the 19th century. The Brigittine monks were refounded in 1976 by Brother Benedict Kirby. Its members wear a grey habit, and are devoted to prayer and contemplation. In addition to Mass, the monks sing the Liturgy of the Hours, say the rosary and engage in spiritual reading. The brothers are especially committed to praying for the souls in purgatory and for the conversion of sinners. The community does not engage in any active apostolic works; they are quiet contemplatives.
