Present with God
and with Others
Encourage me with spiritual reflections, practices, and events from Urban Monastics.
Urban Monasticism is an invitation to intentional living by embedding monastic rhythms into your days, weeks, and seasons. To live as a monastic is a lifelong journey. A way of life rooted in the grace of Christ.
Get Started with Practices
These practices are a simple invitation to experience aspects of a monastic life. To meet with God through the contemplative, meditative practices, and to experience a new pathway of spiritual growth.
Try praying at least one liturgical prayer a day for a few weeks. Learn more about the Divine Office.
Our Commitment is rooted in over 1000 years of monastic wisdom. Dive into what it looks like to implement it into your daily life.
Add a new spiritual practice to your daily rhythm (like a Daily Examen or Lectio Divina).
Join our virtual meetings
Join us for our monthly Gatherings: an open, welcoming space to pray Vespers together, take the Eucharist, and join in conversation. Or join us for a Moment to explore a spiritual practice together.
Follow us for more
Follow us on social media to get a better idea of what Urban Monastics is about, get reminded of when events are happening, and to interact with us throughout the week! We would love for you to join us!
Together we celebrate two of our most important practices. During our gatherings we pray the Divine Office, share the sacrament of the Eucharist, and engage in conversation. Join us for our monthly Gathering!
These times of meeting together are focused on a singular expression, practice, or conversation. The hope is that these times can encourage, equip, and bless those who come.
Read Translation Reflections
Urban Monastics is translating our own breviary. These texts are translated from the original sources in an ecumenical and inclusive way for all who will pray our breviary. We will publish reflections on each psalm, canticle, and many passages that are translated. You can learn more about our approach here.
