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

A greedy appetite for food is terminated by satiety and the pleasure of drinking ends when our thirst is quenched. And so it is with the other things. . . But the possession of virtue, once it is solidly achieved, cannot be measured by time nor limited by satiety. Rather, to those who are its disciples it always appears as something ever new and fresh.

St. Gregory of Nyssa
