Consecrated Life?

Anglican monks, nuns, sisters, brothers? Do they exist? And in Australia? 

We do indeed exist. We believe God calls us to this way of life - consecrated to God's glory and service. This way is sometimes called by its technical name of "Religious life". (Not to imply that other people don't live by religious values - because they do - or to suggest that our way is "higher" than that of others - because it isn't. It's a matter of the varied ways God has called, and continues to call, people to follow in his service.)   

Welcome to the official website of ACARLA - the Advisory Council for Anglican Religious Life in Australia. 

"If any renewal is to happen in the wider Church, it will not be the result of better structures or more gifted leaders. It will follow because there are disciples who follow Jesus with all their being, setting the gospel fully into practice, laying down their lives in prayer and in action - such as the kind of disciples who are consecrated to God through Religious vows."
