Parish Asceticism

JUNE 24-25, 2021
NASHOTAH HOUSE

Asceticism is a subject of perennial and universal interest. Yet the language of asceticism often conjures caricatured images of emaciated monks and nuns who fled to the desert to engage in a kind of harsh asceticism that today would appear to be rooted more in psychological disorder than the love of God. The 2021 Breck Conference on Monasticism & the Church seeks to dispel that distortion by exploring the rich and varied history of true Christian asceticism, as practiced by the early Christian church and recovered as an essential element for the current church – not only for monks but for all baptized Christians. It is in the crucible of the parish that all Christians become ascetics.
