At the heart of the Christian faith lies the Blessed Sacrament of the altar. It is at the altar that the outward and visible sign of God's inward and spiritual grace is conveyed by means of Christ's Body and Blood. Here we share in the divine life through the gift of God's Son, Jesus Christ. Associates of the Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament strive to promote reverence for Our Lord in the Holy Eucharist through the witness of their lives and words, through prayer and teaching. They undertake to pray for one another at the Eucharist and to make careful preparation for the Holy Communion, including the observance of the Eucharistic Fast (in accordance with modern custom) and the use of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The Confraternity also provides grants of vessels and vestments for celebrating the Eucharist and reserving the Blessed Sacrament to poor parishes at home and abroad.
Ours is a devotional society which promotes careful attention to Preparation before and Thanksgiving after, every Communion. Its members are encouraged to make one or more of the following at every Eucharistic celebration they are part of : Acts of Faith, of Adoration, of Spiritual Communion, of Thanksgiving, of Reparation, of Intercession, of Prayer for the Visible Unity of the Church.

An Applicant may be admitted as a member by a Priest Associate or the Secretary-General upon the proper recommendation of a member of the Confraternity.
