Active Religious House

Active Religious House denotes a currently active chapel of an abbey, cloister, convent, friary, hermitage, monastery, priory, seminary, skete, or other institution that houses a religious community and which may or may not be open to lay faithful.

Occasionally, the worship space in such a community serves the dual role of a parish church; however, most often it exists to serve the resident religious community. For this reason, we  recommend consulting the entry 'Notes' to determine which Divine Services are open to public attendance. If the Notes are unclear, or if any doubt remains, please contact the religious community before visiting with the intention of participating in Divine Services.

Wisdom from the Church Fathers

We should zealously cultivate watchfulness, my brethren; and when, our mind purified in Christ Jesus, we are exalted by the vision it confers, we should review our sins and our former life, so that shattered and humbled at the thought of them we may never lose the help of Jesus Christ our God in the invisible battle.

St. Hesychius the Presbyter
