This is

It holds and links to web pages for Anglican religious orders and communities.

We who operate the server, are neither an order nor a community, and we aren't going to venture a definition of either term just yet. We will just tell you what is here without trying to explain it. Please note that every Anglican order and community listed in the Anglican Religious Communities Year Book is welcome to space on this server and to use of the name The Anglican Communion Office in London maintains a very complete list of Anglican Religious Communities, whether or not they have a web presence.

First this:

Anglican Religious Communities Year Book. This book was produced and maintained by Peta Dunstan and Brother Tristam Holland. At Br Tristam's death some years ago, updates ceased. As a result the online copy here had become impossibly obsolete. We got reports of obsolete information and requests to change it every week. We were never authorized to change it, only to publish it. Finally in late 2013 we removed it from the web, as its decade-old incorrect information was doing more harm than good. Copies of the actual book are available from specialty booksellers; the final edition was 2003. Current information can be found in Anglican Religious Life by Peta Dunstan, in print and available from Canterbury Press but not available online in any format.

The rest in alphabetical order:

CSJB: Community of St John Baptist

MBH: The Melanesian Brotherhood
