Have any of you men discerning ever thought you might be called to be a hermit? I have never heard of anyone else talk about it. I myself am now discerning a possible call to be a hermit. Thanks!

:D Hermits are amazing men with a beautiful calling that's all I have to say!

A homeschooling family in my parish told me that their daughter wants to be a hermit. The little girl is in fourth grade, and she built a hut out of cardboard in the woods behind their house.

Ain't that the cutest thing ya ever heard?

I know a hermit who lives out near St. Meinrad in southern Indiana. He's a Benedictine monk who has been given permission to live as a hermit, taking care of one of the shrines run by St. Meinrad. Cool cat.

Neat things to hear!

Do they have female hermits? Obviously, if the Church does, they wouldn't be with men.

I am looking into the [url="http://www.carmelitehermits.org"]Carmelite Hermits[/url]

God bless!

Hey All! I do know of two orders of female hermits.
[url="http://www.hjep.org/"]Hermits of Jesus the Eternal Priest[/url]

They are of the Maronite rite

and the Hermit Sisters of Mary

I also found the definition of a diocesan hermit

Here is a partial listing of male and female hermitages
