Order of Watchers

The Order of Watchers ("Ordre des Veilleurs" in French) is a community of hermits in the French Protestant tradition founded in 1923 by the theologian Wilfred Monod.

Each hermit of the order lives his or her own form of solitude within the Church community to which they are closest in spirit and faith practice. They follow a schedule of prayer three times daily in accordance with their calling to be alone with God. Living out the Christian practice of love for one's neighbour, the hermit is always available to others in need, much like the poustinik of the Russian Christian tradition.

Claude Caux-Berthoud, a Protestant pastor of the United Protestant Church of France, is the sixth prior of the community.[1]
