We are a grouping of diocesan hermits on 200 acres of hardwood forest, hills and hollows, in Southern Missouri. We are neighbors with a Cistercian Monastery, within a few miles. We each have a hermitage chapel with the Blessed Sacrament reserved. We also have a common chapel and library. We gather for daily Mass. There is a morning work period. There is ample time for hobbies, artforms, and crafts in one’s hermitage. Personal internet use on a cellphone, for constructive purposes, and faith sharing is cautiously permitted. The initial observership for approved candidates is for up to three months, with three or more additional years until vows. Our guidelines are approved by our local bishop. Our approved hermit candidate (male or female) possesses a deep faith/eschatological vision and appreciates the primacy of prayer in a simple, Christian life. Significant experience in religious life is necessary, with possible exceptions. Contact us for more information.
