“The basis of mercy is love, and the action of mercy is our protection in love, and this was shown in such a manner that I could not conceive of the property of mercy in any other way than as if it were all love in love.”                                                                              —Julian of Norwich

The Order of Julian of Norwich is a contemplative order of monks and nuns of the Episcopal Church.

The Order was founded in 1985 with the intention of providing contemplative monastic life and witness as a leaven of spiritual renewal in the Episcopal Church. Our life in community is grounded in daily Eucharist and the Divine Office.

With our worldwide family of affiliates we are committed to prayer, intercession, and conversion of life, 'in the spirit of our Mother St Julian', and to broadening understanding of her singular witness to God's love for us in Christ Jesus.
