We are a learning community of ordained and lay Christians who have come together to study English Spirituality—formally called the “English School of orthodox-catholic spirituality”—and to live out this Christian life, and thereby develop resources inspired by the wisdom of this tradition that improve the quality of spirituality practiced by adults and youth in Anglican parish life.
