"Where love exists, it works great things. But where is ceases to act, it ceases to exist." - St. Gregory
NAECC & CAROA Conference 2019 - Siena Retreat Center, Racine Wisconsin
Welcome to NÆCC
Dedicated to fostering the fruits of the Gospel realized in many forms of community life
We represent a form of religious life in the Episcopal Church, rooted in the monastic tradition, which requires member communities to follow a Rule of Life and to be under appropriate ecclesial authority. While some of us practice a lifestyle similar to that of monastics, most follow our Rule while supporting ourselves and living in our own homes.
If you long to love God more deeply… to serve the Church and the world in significant ways… to find authentic, intentional Christian community… we invite you to share the journey with us.
Religious Life Sunday 2023
The 80th General Convention of The Episcopal Church approved resolution 2022-B004, “Foundation of Religious Life Sunday,” to be held each year on the 3rd Sunday of Epiphany. This observance focuses our efforts to tell all Episcopalians and Anglicans about our monastic and Christian Communities and what we offer the church.
