Members of Religious Orders and Communities from throughout the Diocese will gather at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 1 at Church of the Advent, Crestwood to pray Evening Prayer in the Celtic Tradition as practiced by the Anamchara Fellowship. Fr. Marshall Crossnoe, Interim Rector at Advent will be our homilist, and the Advent members of The Daughters of The King will join us and host us afterward for fellowship.

A long anticipated initial gathering of Diocesan Religious was held in October 2019 at Christ Church Cathedral on the Feast of St. Francis, drawing members of The Anglican Dominicans, The Anamchara Fellowship, and the Rivendell Community along with Franciscans. We  anticipate being joined in February by the Interns of  The Deaconess Anne House, the Diocese’s intentional community within The  Episcopal Service Corps, and members of The Daughters of The King and The Brotherhood of St. Andrew.  The group meets quarterly with the worship led in rotation by members of one of the participating communities and sharing their unique liturgical tradition - next up are The Dominicans.

All in the Diocese who are members of communities living under Promises or Vows and  following a Religious Rule of Life are also warmly invited to join us.  Please also plan to join us if you may be interested in learning more about the various forms of the Religious Life as are expressed within The Episcopal Church and broader Anglican Communion.


For further information and to let us know if you would like to join us  please contact Br. Franklin  Kline OP, e-mail: franklin.kline@sbcglobal.net Cell: 314-374-3290.
