Welcome to the Virtual Abbey

I'd like to welcome readers to join the Virtual Abbey. Formerly the Urban Abbey, it provides daily prayer on Twitter of the Daily Office @Virtual_Abbey, a page on Facebook and a blog located here.

The Virtual Abbey offers insights and resources for living as a modern monastic in the Benedictine tradition.

The greeting from the Abbess states:

We're a community of modern-day monastics united by our practice of praying the Daily Office online. We are young and old, male and female, laity and ordained. We live and work in different places around the world.

We do not belong to one single Christian denomination; more than a few of us are practicing members of more than one faith tradition; some are active in the emergent church movement. You could say that we're ecumenical in the extreme. All are truly welcome to pray with us.

No worries about access at the Virtual Abbey. So come join us in prayer on Twitter @Virtual_Abbey, check out the Facebook page or the blog. We look forward to meeting you.
