Thank you for your interest in the Monastic Expression of the Brothers and Sisters of Charity.
The Brothers and Sisters of Charity, founded by John Michael Talbot in 1980, has an integrated monastic expression of celibate brothers and sisters, singles who can marry, and families; and a domestic expression of members who live in their own homes, mostly in the United States. Our two monasteries are in northwest Arkansas and Houston, TX. We are called as a monastic and domestic spiritual family into deep love relationships with and in Jesus Christ. The monastic members share common work and recreation areas while retaining appropriate separate cloistered areas for each expression. Our primary founder is Jesus, our primary rule is Scripture, and love is our primary law, guided by divine truth. Our most important work is to worship God daily as a community during the monastic Liturgy of the Hours. Secondly, we create a spiritual oasis of prayer in our monastic way of life that ministers to the hundreds of pilgrims who come to us.
