Our Lady of the Piedmont Hermitage
WHO ARE WE?
We are members of the Franciscans of Our Saviour, an Anglican religious community of communities. We serve as both urban hermits and as the hub for our area Franciscan community.
In creating Our Lady of the Piedmont Hermitage, we drew on two concepts. First of these concepts was the early Franciscan brothers whose hermitages were where they lived and could go retreat from the world and pray. The other was the growing trend today in many churches of establishing the consecration of urban hermits, those individuals who felt a call to a more solitary religious life.
Our primary purpose is to offer prayer, both through our daily Holy Offices and in the Holy Eucharist for our faith communities and for the world. We also work to promote a better environment through information and example. To learn more about these ministries or to send us a prayer request please contact us.
