A little help if you could...

Mr. Zak has me looking for all sorts of contemplative communties to be prayer warriors for the Here I Am Lord conferences... I think I may have a list of just about every Discalced Carmel in the US, all of the Trappists/Cisternians, Cathursians, Sister Adorers of the Precious Blood, along with a good number of Benedictines, Poor Clares, Dominicans, and a number of other smaller orders. I think I will list the communities and the name of the abbey/monastery/whatever (if I have it) and location so you all can tell me what communities are faithful and orthodox (or not...) and if I am missing any that should be there! (A major thanks to Gemma and her site; it helped big time with this!)

Wouldn't it be kinda cool if phatmass had a 'database' of faithful orthodox orders ('specially ones with habits :) ) with all the contacts, links and such? Just kinda was thinking about this now...

Visitation nuns in Washington, DC? I know there used to be one in New York City or thereabouts (NOT the Second Federation Brooklyn monastery--I'm talking a First Federation monastery).

When did this happen? To which federation do they belong?

Pink Sisters--yes Lincoln, NE, and Corpus Christi, TX

Passionists-- Erlanger, KY; Whitesville, KY; Pittsburgh, PA.

There's also a CP monastery in Clark Summit, PA, but we don't promote them because they modernized too much. Last I saw, they wore 'civvies'.

Where's the fifth one?

Gemma

I'm dancing because you have OLAM on your list. :yahoo: Gemma's site doesn't have them listed, I guess they're not large enough yet. :annoyed:

I think the Carmelites in New Franken and Denmark are one in the same convent. They just built a new convent (for four or five sisters; this convent cost 12 million dollars I think) and now are only in denmark. Now dont' quote me, but I think this accurate.

Missouri has a Passionist convent I believe. It's part of the St. Louis Diocese site on their contemplative sisters.
BTW don't forget the Good Shepherd Contemplatives.
Also there are at least 12 Benedictine monasteries which are fully contemplative. Edited by williamb

:duh: I can't believe I forgot Missouri! Someone I know was accepted to enter there, but she hasn't due to family problems.

As I said, I don't cover the "undercover" nuns. The habit is what the Lord wants. A discerner I worked with looked at the OSBs in Missouri, and after she started attending the Latin Mass, wouldn't have anything to do with them.

I had developed a monastic tour of St. Louis, but we moved before I could implement it.

In addition to what Angela is working on for me, I have a list of 200 communities in spreadsheet format. We will be posting al of them to the Conference Website during the summer. Thanks to all who are assisting Angela, we need Prayer Warriors to open the minds and hearts of teens, young adults and parents.

That's what our Cloisterites will be doing--offering everything for the increase of cloistered vocations.

Sorry to be a bummer, but the Newark monastery of the Dominican Nuns closed in 2003. It is now a formation house for the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal.Also, the Washington D.C. sisters are moving to Virginia and building a new monastery.
