On May 31, 2001, His Holiness Pope Shenouda III, along with His Grace Bishop Serapion, and over 13 bishops ordained Fr. Isaac Boulos Azmy as a celibate priest to head the Brotherhood. On October 20, 2002, and Fr. John Paul Abdelsayed was ordained as a celibate priest by His Grace Bishop Serapion and His Grace Bishop Youssef.
The Brothers keep the rule of praying the Hours of the Agpeya. Some prayers are prayed communally; others individually. Additionally, they chant the Midnight Praise and Morning Doxology daily. Each year, the members of the Brotherhood take a retreat in El Baramous Monastery for prayer, reflection and meditation.
