5PM on Sundays @ Taborspace 5441 SE Belmont St Portland Oregon


We know we’re not the only ones who feel drawn to Jesus, but not religion; community, but not confinement. Jesus’ message is profoundly relevant to our chaotic lives today. A Modern Monastery exists to equip and encourage followers with practices and community for a Contemplative Christian Spiritual journey. If it can’t be lived, we probably won’t waste our time talking about it. We aim to engage and participate with Christ, in all, and through all.

To inquire more, email us, we'd love to hear from you.


Our goal is simply to create space for ourselves to be present to God, one another, and ourselves in practical and encouraging ways. Where most of culture complicates our identities and outlook, we believe Jesus directs us to simplify our lives to this truth: Christ is all, and is in all. There is no exclusion or absence.

A Modern Monastery practices this with an emphasis on silent prayer, meditation, spiritual direction, sacred reading, Agape Feasts, eucharist, the prayer of examine, the stations of the cross, and regular gatherings.

At our gatherings, we eat and drink together, share in art and music, practice sacred reading and silent prayer, and have discourse about the practical implications of Jesus' life and message as it applies to our lives and hearts today. We also provide child-care. Welcome all who feel drawn toward the silence, lifestyle, and expression of the Contemplative Christian Spiritual journey and don’t exclude anyone according to their identity (sexuality, gender, race, etc) in the journey.
