Anglicans Online is the unofficial gateway to all things Anglican, and beyond. It is your source of information for not only Churches in the Anglican Communion (for which also see The Anglican Communion website), but also Churches in Communion with the Anglican Communion, and Churches Not in the Communion which are nevertheless, in some sense, Anglican. Confusing to navigate, it is still the best resource for information about Anglicanism world-wide.

Anglican Monastic Communities

The Sisterhood of St. John the Divine
The Sisterhood of St. John the Divine is a contemporary expression of the religious life for women within the Anglican Church of Canada. The community was founded in Toronto in 1884. A brief history of its ministry can be found here. The Mother House is in Toronto. The Sister offer a number of opportunites to participate in their life, such as retreats of various kinds; you can learn more hereSeveral programs for closer associations, including joining the Sisterhood exist, and can be explored on the Join Us tab of their website. Note that while becoming a Sister is obviously restricted to women, almost everything else the Convent offers is open to both sexes.

Holy Cross Monastery
Holy Cross Monastery is an Anglican Benedictine Community of Men, located in West Park, NY. They also had a Priory in Toronto, located near High Park, that they recently closed. Benedictines are communities of prayer and worship, whose service to the world includes the ministry of hospitality, and thus similar opportunities to those of the Sisterhood (above) are available. Our rector, Fr. Matt, has been an Associate of the Order for over twenty years.

Anglican Dominicans
The Anglican Order of Preachers is an apostolic religious community made up of members all throughout the Anglican Communion inspired by the spiritual tradition of the founder, Saint Dominic de Guzman.  The Order is composed of men and women from around the world and various provinces of the Anglican Communion and her sister Churches. Vowed members surrender their entire lives to an apostolic lifestyle dedicated to God. This lifestyle, inspired by the lives of the first apostles and Saint Dominic, is lived out within the ordinary challenges of life, so that all people in all places can hear the Gospel. They support themselves and the Order by their work, either within the Church or the world. Brothers and sisters take vows of marriage or vows of celibacy. In everything members are encouraged to live out the words of Saint Dominic, “to speak with God or about God.” Our St. Andrew's Church is blessed by having among us Br. John Maine OP, who is Novice of the Order


Other Links

The Holy See
The Holy See is the Vatican website. While offering contemporary Roman Catholic News and documents, it is also the gateway to the Vatican's treasures, libraries, and art collections. It offers picture galleries and virtual tours of chapels and other sites of interest. The Vatican Libraries offer scans of original documents, and the Vatican Museums are partially viewable. Often much of this vast site is "under construction" or being repaired, and broken links (including some on the "Welcome" page and in this listing) a well as sudden language changes are common. This site is an invitation to exploration and the loss of time, but often rewards persistence.

Virtual Jerusalem
Virtual Jerusalem is a gateway to all things Judaism. While it may not answer every question you have ever had about Jewish history, life, customs, holidays, it will come close. It also offers a particular Israeli view of contemporary news, entertainment, and life in general.

See the Holy Land
See the Holy Land is an exhaustive (and possibly exhausting) virtual visit to the Holy Land, and while it concentrates on sites of particular importance to Christians, it does not neglect Jewish and Muslim holy places. The descriptions and discussions are respectful of scholarship, by offering not just biblical sources, but also academic references for the claims made. And, while the majority of the site is devoted to Israel, there are also references to sites in Jordan and Egypt. There are also some useful extras, such as historical timelines and an extensive bibliography. And for anyone planning an independent Holy Land visit, opening times and other details for the various sites are very useful.
