“Our life with God draws us to the deepest empathy with the sorrows, the joys and the hopes so confidently entrusted to our prayers each day”

Community 2020

We are Discalced Carmelite Nuns, daughters of St. Teresa of Avila. We are consecrated to Jesus Christ by a life of unceasing prayer lived in a cloistered community of women. His love has called us to live together as sisters in a small family in order to help one another and to pray for the needs of the Church and the world.

Home-2Our life with God draws us to solidarity with the sorrow, the joys and the hopes so confidently entrusted to our prayers each day.

We lift these concerns daily to the heart of God, Who is Love and Who understands our every need.



‘Let There Be Light’ 2024

We will be 100 years old on October 24, 2025! We pray daily for the light of wisdom and in our prayer we discerned that it is expedient that we invest in solar energy for sake of the future of our monastery.

After much research and prayer, we have chosen a system and contractor which will give us the greatest returns: nominal electric bills for the future! 


We are excited to announce that, thanks to all our generous donors, we have now raised 70% of our $300,000 goal for the “Let There Be Light” capital campaign.  On behalf of the Sisters, we express our profound gratitude for joining together to get us to this point.  Praise Be to God!

Now, we are just $90,000 short of reaching our goal, and as you may be aware, the final stretch is always the hardest one to reach.  But with God’s grace, we know we can do it!

To help with this final push, the Sisters are holding a “Boutique on the Lawn” fundraising sale on July 14, 2024 from 10am-2pm.  The Sisters have been busy making handmade arts and crafts for this special event, and we have also engaged local artists and other friends of the Monastery to donate their works.  You’ll even find new and used books, potted plants, pottery, and many other items at the “Boutique on the Lawn.” It’s an event you won’t want to miss, all in the beautiful surrounding of our beloved Carmelite Monastery.

The Sisters are MOST grateful for your time, commitments, and generosity and we look forward to celebrating the completion of our momentous campaign soon!
