Religious Communities in the Parish
The Grey Robe Monks of Saint Benedict are an ecumenical order following the Rule of St. Benedict. The Order was established as a monastery-without-walls in that the members engage in secular work, some have families, all live independently. The Order is open to women and men - single, married/partnered - who seek a deeper relationship with God. As a community they develop this deeper relationship by gathering for the liturgy of the hours - Opus Dei, lectio divina - prayerful meditation of biblical texts, study of the Rule of Benedict, and celebration of the Eucharist. They also engage in works of service to our worship communities and the secular community as well.

The Ecumenical Order of Saints Francis and Clare is a community of Franciscans in the Sacramento area. This community is structured to include single and married/partnered members- both men and women.
