The Community of Jesus is a fellowship of Christian disciples called by our Lord Jesus Christ and dedicated to the honor of his name. 
Rule of Life, Chapter 1


Through the centuries, Christians have gathered to form communities in which they have supported one another in prayer, work, and fellowship.

On a small plot of land overlooking Cape Cod Bay in Orleans, Massachusetts, that commitment has taken the form of an ecumenical Christian community in the Benedictine monastic tradition.

Members of the Community of Jesus, who come from a wide variety of denominational backgrounds and occupations, make professions of commitment according to their Rule of Life, including vows of obedience, stability, and conversion of life.

Founded upon Scripture and the heritage of monastic tradition, the Community of Jesus gives definition to its purpose as a living witness to the values and principles essential to Christian life and faith. Members of the Community of Jesus are joined in a common commitment of love and service to God, to each other and to the world.
