About Us

“I am more aware of Christ in others, and Christ’s working in, around, and through me.” 

We are a vowed community of women in The Episcopal Church who, committed to our baptismal covenant, seek and serve Christ in all persons. We hold to a Rule of Life that calls us to grow in our relationship to God, connect through relationships with others, support those to whom we are bound through our community, and serve others and the whole of God’s creation, in order to be more effective disciples in our personal lives, the Episcopal Church, and the world.

History of The Episcopal Community


The summer of 2009, a group of Episcopal Women with a vision for a non residential avowed life, joined together to begin making their vision a reality. Realizing their Episcopal heritage sprang from The Benedictine Rule and was enhanced by the Baptismal Covenant, they began to create a Rule of Life and a format for a life formed by the Rule and Covenant, and structured for systematic annual accountability.

They chose Jane Tomaine’s book, “St Benedict’s Tool Box” as their preparatory study, crafting a study guide to help guide future members along their journey, with the aid of a personal mentor. In February 2010, The Episcopal Community was incorporated. Officers elected, a National Chaplain appointed as well as a National Spiritual Advisor. With these positions in place, their request to be recognized by the Presiding Bishop was granted. The journey was begun and continues to gather others into this nurturing life discipline.
