RooT (Religious of orthodox Tradition) is a group of Anglican Religious who support the aims of The Society. Many people are unaware that there are communities of monks and nuns in the Anglican Communion. RooT is keen to publicise the opportunity available to serve God through the Religious Life. To this end they have now launched a new section of The Society website to promote the life and work of RooT. It can be found here.
Anyone who feels they may be called to this way of life can read about vocation and then make contact with RooT via the site. Back in 2014 RooT organised a successful vocations conference. One of the attendees has now become a novice in a monastic community. A second conference will take place in York on 1 October 2016. More information is available here.
On launching the site, the Chairman of the Council of Bishops, the Rt Revd Tony Robinson (Bishop of Wakefield), said:
Religious Communities are the constant heartbeat of the Church, with their lifelong commitment and disciplined prayer life. I hope this new website may encourage those who are seeking a vocation to the religious life.
