Simplicistic Living


Are there any sub-groups, or sects, or orders (not sure of the proper nomenclature) that are Roman Catholic, but similar to the Amish in that they live simply, in communion with each other, and are very close knit.

Just curios for personal research…


Hopefully not.


In general, members of any religious order live very simply and in community…but there is also a movement out there called Plain Catholics who have a lot in common with the Amish.


Maybe the Little Brothers of Charles de Foucault.


Thanks everyone who already has posted, and more posts are welcome! This will give me some cool stuff to read!

Say a prayer for our brothers and sisters of other faiths, and a prayer for ourselves to grow deeper into Christ and brotherhood.
