Community of the Gospel (CG)

Introduction to the community

We are a non-residential monastic community with standing in The Episcopal Church whose members help each other become more Christ-like. We do this by living a monastic life of daily prayer, reflective study, and personal service in the secular world. We seek to demonstrate our faith in unique ways while allowing our lives to be transformed by God. Although we are primarily a dispersed community (we live and work in and across the United States and in the Bahamas), we travel together as one in spirit with Our Lord. Our life together is ordered by “A Common Rule for Monastics of the Community of the Gospel.” We believe that our purpose is to awaken to God’s wisdom and love, and to shape our lives following God’s principles. The expression of our unique personal mission in life is in response to the love of God. We join together in Christ to share our journey and our resources, and to encourage each other’s faith journey. It’s all summed up in our motto: “Know the Gospel; Live the Gospel.”
