The Community of the Paraclete

The Paracletian Community:

  • lives the Gosple of Jesus Christ
  • builds positive relationships
  • values every person as a unique image of God
  • welcomes diversity

  • supports spiritual growth
  • communicates openly and honestly

We honor the Paraclete, the Holy Spirit,  by preparing ourselves to strengthen and comfort others and by welcoming the Spirit's guiding presence within us as the mind of Christ.

We follow the Holy Spirit as we discern the Spirit's will both individually and collectively.

The Brothers and Sisters take the vows of Simplicity, Fidelity, and Obedience, after a period of formation of 3 to 5 years.  As an active apostolic community we welcome single, married, partnered, lay or ordained men and women to inquire about our life and work.
