The Community of the Resurrection consists of men who, freely accepting the call of God, have committed themselves to follow the gospel life.
We aim to renew this place of hospitality, welcome and learning as a resource for Church and society in a turbulent and changing world. Our aim is to ensure that all who come can share in our life and leave refreshed and renewed through their experience.
People who stay at the Mirfield Monastery, home of the Community of the Resurrection, come for a variety of different reasons. These can be individually arranged retreats, guided retreats led by a member of the Community or the College, week long special courses, or clergy retreats.
‘Half Jesuit and half Salvation Army,’ someone said of Father Raynes. An Anglican monk, the late Superior of the Community of the Resurrection, Mirfield, England, Father Raynes combined personal holiness with a passionate care for people, and intellectual zeal with a life of intense activity. In Johannesburg, South Africa, he founded churches and schools, a work continued by Father Huddleston. In England he challenged the ‘establishment’ in the Church yet stood for tradition.
Nicolas Mosley, who was asked by the Community of the Resurrection, Mirfield, England to write this biography, was himself an agnostic when he first met Father Raynes. He writes, ‘Father Raynes was a person whom one either had to listen to or to deny; one could not ignore him.’
