Are there Anglican Monks and Nuns?

Yes, there are many different communities throughout the Anglican Communion. Although Religious orders were dissolved among Anglicans in the 16th century, from the 1840s there was a revival of community life for both men and women. Communities ran schools, hospitals and other ministries to the poor. In the later 20th century, vocations to this life were fewer, but in recent years there has been renewed interest. There are still a hundred communities worldwide: some are single-sex and some include both men and women. Some communities are involved in social ministry, others a more contemplative life of prayer. See the Anglican Religious Life Year Book for more information.
