We are Discalced Carmelite Nuns,

members of the Order of the Blessed

Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel

We are a worldwide Order, or religious family,

and it also includes as its members Friars

and lay people, Secular Carmelites.

We live a cloistered, contemplative life,

following in the footsteps of St. Teresa of Avila


"We are called by God to live a life of prayer for the church & for the World"

We are Contemplative Nuns called by God to live a life of prayer for the Church and for the World.

Our life as Discalced Carmelites is a continuous journey in prayer towards union with God.

This radical choice is a response to a personal call, following a time of discernment, to commit one’s life to God.

In our Rule of Life we are encouraged to meditate day and night on the Word of the Lord.
