We are Discalced Carmelite Nuns because we believe
God chose each of us, invited us, and confirmed us
over the years in the gift of a Carmelite vocation.
A vocation to be a Discalced Carmelite Nun
begins with God's initiative, some beckoning movement
of the Holy Spirit in a person's life. It continues with the
discerning response of the one touched by God's grace,
as well as community discernment by the monastery
where the individual launches out into the deep following
her perceived call.
We, the members of Mary, Queen of Carmel Association,
would be happy to help you ‘find your place’ if you sense
that you are being called to share religious life with
the Discalced Carmelite Nuns for the sake of Jesus Christ
and the Church. Our communities are scattered geographically,
but we are united in the Carmelite spirit and ideals.
We are delighted to serve the Lord and His Church by our life of prayer, and we encourage you to follow your inspiration to join us.
