Originally developed in response to the arrival of pandemic in March 2020 with the Parish of Bulimba, Holy Hermits Online is now hosted by St John's Cathedral Brisbane and is boundary-less and geographically free to invite people from everywhere to join in and live as the Body of Christ online.
Having the space available for those who attend to interact with one another and with the liturgy, by offering their ministry gifts, makes this community engagement unique.
With inclusivity and invitational values driving the ministry, Holy Hermits Online enables people who may not have been able to exercise their ministry gifts in a physical Church setting, to function as a member of the body of Christ in an authentic and meaningful way.
By being free of building management or geographical limitations the focus of community connection and pastoral care are paramount for Holy Hermits Online.
Inspired by the Holy Hermits from our history we are encouraged by their examples to make space for God to transform our lives and the lives of those around us through us.
