Vocation Prayer Drive

We’re asking everyone to pray for Vocations from Feb 2-10th.
Help us reach our goal of 25,000! 

Ash Wednesday's "About Face"

Well, we all know there are 365 days in a year (of course in leap year we add one more for a total of 366). Once a year on Ash Wednesday, Catholics as well as some other Christian denominations demonstrate a complete “about-face”.

Approaching Lent, Approaching the Cross

As we approach the season of Lent in the Church, we approach again another opportunity to unite ourselves to our Lord Jesus in his Passion, Death and Resurrection.

Uncovering Human Dignity with Mercy

When Pope Francis asks the Church to “announce the mercy of God,” he is asking us to recognize the dignity of every human person. Let us heed the call!

Solemnity of Mary Mother of God

In honoring Our Lady as the Mother of God, we remember that her motherhood is a great source of grace and salvation for us because it was through her that we “received the Author of Life.”

Mercy on the MOVE

As we cross the threshold of this blessed Jubilee Year of Mercy, let us allow our hearts to be set ablaze with Jesus’ missionary zeal. Jesus wants to reach out to the lost, the frightened, the lonely, the hopeless and the broken. But He chooses to do so through us.

Nothing is Impossible

Through prayer, joyful witness and loving service, The Carmelite Sisters are able to promote a deeper spiritual life among God’s people. The Carmelite Sisters have gathered footage from their many apostolic service locations and put together this wonderful video which truly is a labor of love.

St. Teresa and St. John of the Cross

These two, although years apart in age and in their lived experience of religious life first met when Teresa, beginning the foundation of her second reformed Carmel, was 52 years of age and John newly ordained as a priest was 25. 

Moments of Grace...A Book of True Stories

For the first time ever, the Carmelite Sisters are sharing in a 350+ book, stories that have only been shared within the convent walls.  Expect to cry, laugh and to be inspired. Order your copy today! Share with us what you think as you read…
