Whether seasoned Christians or Seekers, Holy Hermits Online offers people a place to gather, engage in worship and be enabled to offer their ministry gifts in the building up of God’s Kingdom online.
No one should miss out on participating as part of the Body of Christ because of their circumstances.
That's why we seek to make Church accessible for all.
“Missional communities exist when we participate in God’s mission of reconciliation beyond the walls of the church through relationships and worship.” ~ The Episcopal Diocese of Texas | Ministry Partner
Our varied and diverse ministry programs enable us to encourage the vocations of all our members and create a space where each persons unique spiritual and ministry gifts can be exercised in community.
Holy Hermits Online commits to being a borderless community, welcoming all people, respectful of difference.
Embracing technology in a safe, secure space we commit to:
journeying, growing, exploring and discerning the Christian faith together, grounded in the Anglican tradition;
sharing Jesus' love through uplifting each other in community with worship, prayer, study and support; and
our responsibility for the attentive caretaking of creation, including our companion animals as part of our Church family.
This pledge reflects who we are as a community at September 2022 and may evolve with us over time. (Amended Pets to companion animals 2023)

"I have never been able to attend an Ash Wednesday service before but can attend, for the first time in 28 years, this year with Holy Hermits Online."
"I have found the services provide a warm circle of belonging and sharing. An effective time to iron out the uncertainties and downs in daily living and bring my focus back to the wider experience beyond me and now. I think the services could have a wider application beyond these times, as they are not age or circumstances specific to the listeners."
"HHO offers a wonderful safe space to worship, pray, learn and sing hymns (as loudly and/or badly as you care to). Everyone is made to feel welcome and can bring their gifts to share and celebrate. It’s a place to be genuine with our Lord and one another, and a real spiritual home from home."
"A most comforting and inspiring service with words to remember when we find ourselves in a personal desert of our own."
My present medical condition isolates me somewhat. I listen each week and value the spiritual connection Holy Hermits gives. I appreciate the effort, thought and spiritual experience needed to bring services of this high quality into being. What a wonderful outreach it is.
"The thing I love about Holy Hermits is that I can connect with the community and the services wherever I happen to be."
