The religious practices of the Order of Sempringham of the Primitive Observance will be along the same lines as the rest of the religious life.

They will find their strength in the daily Eucharist.

Out of austerity of sound, they will chant the Divine Office in monotone.

The corded rosary suspended from their plain rope cintures will exemplify St. Gilbert's devotion to Our Lady.

In the Benedictine tradition, they will practice meditation and Lectio Divina.

Holy reading will be in the cloister, as per the Gilbertine constitutions.
