Do Old Believers have monastics? Why or why not?

Thanks, Mike! I had never heard of an Old Believer monastery, and wondered about that. So, you even have them in Poland? I didn't know that!

There are 4 parishes each contain about 500 believers. They are descendants of XVIIth/XVIIIth century refugees who came to Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth because of persecutions in Russia. They settled in Masuria in XIXth century. I slightly misguided you because we used to have a monastery. The last nun died in 2006. here and here you have got some photos.
