"Quiet religious community"

Circle of Love in Hyde Park sounds like it should be the name of a sitcom, but it's a real street. In fact, it connects to Comforter Way, Life Crescent, Intellect Way, and Union of God Lane, amongst others. Yes, it is part of a religious community.

Little information on it is available outside of some published reports, but the name of it is Mariapolis Luminosa, and is unofficially associated with the Catholic faith (apparently part of the "Focolare Movement." Members of his community live in close proximity, with some facilities in the neighborhood for prayer and such.

This is clearly not a traditional neighborhood where it's just as simple as finding a real estate agent and showing up. What exists on this road is part of its own planned community. I would imagine that there is a certain procedure one must go through in order to move here, and that isn't a question I'm equipped to answer. You would have to assess that with its leaders.

Being in this area of Hyde Park, it's not very close to lots of major amenities, but it won't take forever to get there, either. One would imagine that they chose this location because it's in a green and safe setting and it's a little bit out of the way.
