Are there people in Cambridge England out there interested in New Monasticism? I am. But I am thinking it is better to be more than a community of one to get anywhere with this. Thoughts group?

Hi all. The Restoration Project community in Tucson, Arizona, has recently opened discernment for new resident members. To learn more about our community see my page here or our blog:

We are ecumenical. We are activists and ministers. We work and support one another's work on border issues (we are one hour from the U.S./ Mexico border). We share Sabbath time together, pray, sing, worship in silence, share meals, offer hospitality. We have found a lot of abundance in this model of living and ministry.

If you or someone you know is yearning to be part of a real-live community with Anglican inspiration, ecumenical sensibilities, and a bent toward social justice rooted in spiritual practices and community, let me know!

I'm glad and hearted by the new monastic movement and its potential to be part of the saving grace of the Church again in our own age.

See my own community at:

Also see our group "Friends of the Anglican Dominicans" on facebook

In Christ and dominic, Father Kevin

Hello all,

I'm Miguel Zavala-Múgica, a priest of the Anglican Church of Mexico (Diocese of WMexico). Looking for new friends within the Communion, and new friends interested in religious life.

I was born and grew up in Mexico City, where I was ordained a priest in 1995 (I'm 41 y/o now). My family was Roman Catholic, and my first teacher in the faith was a Spanish Benedictine monk and priest from Santo Domingo de Silos Abbey (Fr. Mariano Palacios-González OSB), who worked in my neighborhood.

Later, in my adolescence, I was an Antiochian Orthodox for five years and experienced intensively and passionately the Orthodox spirituality.

I became an Anglican because, concerning to my faith and opinion, I consider myself as a Liberal Protestant (well, at least that's what the text at BeliefoMatic said), I find no way to establish any kind of community in my country and Church, so I pray my Office (from the BCP), read constantly the Holy Scripture, and study as much as I can.

I've been Vicar at a number of congregations in teh Diocese of Mexico, and I'm currently working as Secretary to the Bishop in WMexico.

Thanks for your attention.
