When the Copts came to North America in the 1960's-70;s, they would meet in each others homes and read the Bible together. Very quickly they requested care, and priests were ordained to serve them. Within 50 years there are hundreds of churches, most with multiple priests. Today, when they go to areas that have no church yet, they meet, and they ask a neighbouring priest to come as often as possible, usually once a month on a Saturday since they have to pray in their own church on Sundays, until the community is able to support a priest, and then a priest is ordained for them and they have Liturgy every Sunday and on feast days. Often the Liturgy will be prayed by a visiting priest in a family's home with just the family, or if there are a few other families in the city, with them too. There are some who go to remote areas to work and do not seek the visits of a priest to pray the Liturgy with them. But that is not out of asceticism, it is out of indifference.
This process has nothing to do with asceticism.
In the Liturgy we are united to God and to fellow Christians as we become together the Body of Christ. This is the essence of the Liturgy, that we are members of the Body. It is not something that can be done alone. Christianity is essentially communal. However, some are also called to a life of solitude. They practice silence, vigil, ceaseless prayer (we are all called to pray without ceasing), and even so they come together once a week for a common Liturgy and teaching. A select few, become hermits, living entirely alone. This is not a denial of Communion or the Body of Christ. They have moved passed the outward form of the Liturgy and live it internally: they are perpetually in Communion with God and united to Him and with other Christians mystically. Many of them are bourn in the Spirit and assemble together for Liturgy, but even if they do not, they are living always with God. This in no way applies to us in the world, not even to most monks in a monastery, we are given the easier means of entering Communion and being Church through the visible Liturgy, though we only benefit from it if we participate internally as well.
There was a period of persecution in Egypt where the doors of the Church were forcibly closed for more than 7 years, and there were no Liturgical services, no weddings, no baptisms, no Eucharist. God can give grace at times like this, but again, this has nothing to do with choosing a life apart from the Eucharist
