The Community of the Holy Spirit is a monastic community for women in the Episcopal Church, and a witness to the work of the Holy Spirit in the world.
The Sisters' loving service extends to all of Creation, and we recognize Earth and all life as a primary revelation of the divine.
We welcome you to share in our life and our work by following along with our blog and this website, subscribing to our e-newsletter (you can visit our newsletter archive here), and visiting us at our Community houses: St. Hilda's House in New York City and Melrose/Bluestone Farm in Brewster, NY.
A NOTE ABOUT CREDIT CARDS —
The support of many of our friends is so deeply appreciated, and we hoped to make contributions as easy as possible by including the use of credit cards as a payment option. However, the behind-the-scenes security requirements (designed, we suspect, for companies the size of IBM) have become burdensome to the point of impossibility for us, and we can no longer offer this option. You may certainly make contributions, pay for overnight accommodations or purchase items when available by using a check or through PayPal. We try to include "donate" buttons wherever appropriate in our online presence; if using PayPal or the donate buttons, please do include a brief explanation for your payment so we can use it appropriately.
Not many people use their credit cards with us, so we hope this change is not onerous. If you have any questions, please contact us!
