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.
