The Carmelite friars living at More House in Heslington seek to be a praying community at the service of all God’s people. Their main ministry is supplying the Catholic Chaplaincies to the University of York and York District Hospital, and they are very involved in a number of ecumenical and interfaith initiatives in the city and beyond.
The sisters at 110 Lawrence Street are ‘apostolic’ women working and praying in the community, serving in a number of apostolates in the city and local parishes.
The dozen or so sisters at Thicket Priory in Thorganby live an enclosed monastic life, praying for the needs of the Church and the World.
This small community of monks, has been based in the Groves area of York since 1995. Under the Orthodox Patriarchate of Constantinople it is within the Archdiocese of Western Europe.

Following the destruction of Coventry Cathedral in 1940, Provost Dick Howard made a far reaching and inspirational commitment to work together with those who had been enemies, to build a kinder, more Christ-Child-like world. St Martin Coney Street, York became a partner in the international Community of the Cross of Nails on 29 April 2012, the 70th anniversary of the destruction of the church in 1942. In common with all the Community partners, St Martin Coney Street endeavours to: • Heal the wounds of history • Build a culture of peace • Learn to live with difference and to celebrate diversity
St Martin’s Community of the Cross of Nails meets in St Martin’s every Friday at noon to pray the Coventry Litany of Reconciliation, and to reflect about how we are living together in hope by putting these aims into practice.
