NEWS FROM THE BENEDICTINE COMMUNITY OF THE HOUSE OF INITIA NOVA


Dear Family, I am pleased to announce that HIN has been recognized by the North American Episcopal Christian Communities. This is the last of the organizations in America recognizing our authenticity.


Our introduction to NAECC now reads:


HOUSE OF INITIA NOVA -  House of New Beginings – 30 plus years in the Making!


What are you looking for? Life seems to be one more thing to do – and feels less for it? Does life seem like one distraction after an other – and yet the end is never insight? Does one’s history keep you from becoming more?


If any of these ring true, you may be the perfect inquirer into Religious Life. The House of Initia Nova is a Recognized Benedictine Episcopal Community / Order, opened to all who wish to be more tomorrow than you are today.


If you are someone who desires a Contemplative life, God – You  – Community; centered in prayer, dating back 1,500 plus years yet speaking to contemporary issues, this Benedictine House may be what you are looking for!!


Members are found in the United States, England, Scotland, Cuba, Australia.

Motherhouse is in Ponce, Puerto Rico  - working on being bi-lingual.


The Chapel and Mona was recently blessed by Bishop Raphel L Morales Maldonado – Diocesan
