The Community of Aidan and Hilda (CA&H) in the US is a sister Community to its founding organization in the UK. We are a dispersed, ecumenical community who live by what we call a Way of Life. Before all else, we seek to be wholly available to the Holy Trinity and committed to the way of Jesus as revealed to us in Scripture.
In order to earth our commitment, we draw inspiration from Celtic saints such as Aidan and Hilda. These particular saints symbolize two servants of God in different race and gender who became soul friends for the common good. As such, they represent both the flame of zeal to witness for Christ along with the struggle of peace-making in a chaotic world, which reflect the root intention of our community.
Our members reside in twenty states across the country, grouped together within the framework of nine geographical regions. Each region has a Guardian who is represented on the Caim (the Gaelic word for circle) who encircle the different groups to bring cohesion to the whole.
