Community of St. Anselm

The Community of St. Anselm has currently opened its application period for young people between the age of 20-35 years to spend a year in God’s time. Below is the link attached.

Please share this with young people in your Parish who are eager to learn more about God, to spend time in his presence and live a semi monastic life through prayer, study and service. Those who have an interest may apply.  

Interested persons can contact The Rev’d Khadisha Smart, so that they can have an idea of what the program is like.
