Praised be Jesus Christ! Welcome to our Carmel, named after St. Thérèse of Lisieux, the Patroness of the Missions and the “Greatest Saint of modern times”. You are about to enter into the silence and solitude of the desert of Carmel.
Although we are cloistered nuns and do not have any active apostolate, since our one apostolate is prayer, that does not mean this vocation is dull and devoid of life. No, Carmel is a desert that is brimming with life and beauty. Its very name, karem-el, means “Garden of God”.
