As I have repeatedly stated on the 23rdstreet.com website and in various YouTube videos, Joseph Natale, the founder of Most Holy Family Monastery (MhFM), was not a Sedevacantist.
All those “want-to-be monastics” that sought and managed to gain entry into Natale’s Berlin, NJ, “friary” were required to adopt the religious community’s position on the need to diligently work towards unifying / healing the Roman Church after its tragic break from tradition (Vatican II), and not to “fragment” it any further.
Thus, it can logically be assumed that Frederick (a.k.a. Brother Michael) Dimond agreed to abide by those terms when he joined Joseph’s "friary” in 1992 at the age of 19.
After Joseph Natale's sudden demise in November 1995, Fred (Bro. Michael) took control over MhFM, assuming the role of a Benedictine Superior which declared to the world, according to the Rule of St Benedict, that he now held: "the place of Christ within the monastery".
You can witness for yourself that Fred continued to espouse Natale's traditional Catholic ideals as seen in an excerpt of a 1996 video where he (Brother Michael) denounces Sedevacantism:
