Founded for the glory of God and inspired by the example of St Francis of Assisi, Little Portion Hermitage is a place of Christ-centered solitude, sacred silence, and intercessory prayer. We believe and profess all that the holy Catholic Church teaches, believes and proclaims to be revealed by God. The hermit residing at Little Portion is a person in Consecrated Life in accord with Canon 603, under the jurisdiction of the bishop of the Diocese of Portland, ME.
