Founders who don’t actually belong to the orders they establish are known as a “dux”. Here is another “Dux Order”, the Sisters of the Fiat. They were recently established in the Archdiocese of Louisville, KY:

Thank you for this link. I plan on taking my daughters to visit them.

Mrs. Cloisters, I tried to find out more information about “dux,” and could not do so. Could you please post links or other resources on this concept or usage? Thank you.

Brian Golding’s works on St Gilbert of Sempringham. If you can’t find it in Golding’s epic work on the British religious order, try emailing him. I can’t remember exactly where I saw it, but his name was in the general area. I was surprised to see the term myself.
