Carmelite Sisters Today

"We firmly believe that with God and Mary on our side, we may accomplish even the impossible."

Who We Are

We are consecrated religious in the Catholic Church and members of a Congregation founded by Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa. We dedicate our lives, service and care of those who are aged and infirm in the spirit and tradition of the Carmelite Order.

We are women who share a vision where love makes a difference in the world. We may be diverse in age, background, culture and training but we are all united in our belief that life is precious from the moment of conception to its natural end. We have learned that life is full of memories pieced together to form God's hand-woven tapestry. As Sisters we believe our story is tied to the story of every man and woman who are experiencing the autumn of their life. This includes their joys and sorrows, their pains and consolations, their love of family, their hopes and dream, their search for God and finding that He is always near. Our life as Carmelites is all about holding the hand of an aged person and giving meaning to their lives. It's truly about being a mother, a sister, a daughter and a friend to someone who is another's mother, sister, friend and loved one.

We are Carmelites who follow the Rule of Saint Albert and are nourished by the tradition and examples of Saint Elias, St. Teresa of Avila, Therese of Lisieux and many holy men and women of the Carmelite Order. Our legacy is strong and one which we proudly share. Steeped in prayer, service and a devotion to the Lord, we value life in all its stages as we follow the example and vision of our Foundress, Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa. We minister to Christ in the person of the elderly but always return to the spiritual mount of our prayer and contemplation.
