The Abbey of Hope is an interfaith community located in Southern Maine and Northern New England gathering to promote, facilitate and encourage interfaith understanding through fellowship, educational opportunities, programming, retreats, pilgrimages, interfaith mission, conferences, interfaith gatherings, projects and service. The heart of the Abbey is Peace.  Initially  members are planning to create meet up groups to initiate sharing sacred space, writers groups to create interfaith lectio divina , have meet ups for shared practice such as meditation, art making, storytelling etc.. Also CC members will be creating and facilitating interfaith retreats, developing interfaith mission trips and pilgrimages as well. They have developed a vision, gathered a virtual community and had our first gathering circle. They have surveyed 250 people and have the sense of what they wish to do as a virtual cooperation circle. We will have several more meetings this fall with the plan to fully launch on January 1st 2015. 

Focusing on peace and shared experiences
