Dear Friends and Benefactors!

From July 7-15, during our Novena preceding the Solemnity of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, through the intercession of the Queen of the Holy Scapular, we will commend to God all the intentions of the Church, the entire world, as well as our families and communities. We invite you to unite with us in prayer.

May the Queen of Carmel shelter you under her mantle, protect you from all danger, obtain from God the graces you need, and lead you to Her Son Jesus Christ.

 

We thank you for your prayers, your generosity and the offerings.

God bless you!

Our Shrine


The beauty of Mount Carmel and the spiritual traditions of this place are the reasons why in the thirteenth century our religious family is born in the Church. Surrounding peace and solitude, meditation on the Word of God and work are the values uniting the hermits of Carmel around Mary, their sister and mother. In the sixteenth century thanks to the efforts of Saint Teresa of Jesus and Saint John of the Cross, we focus on new aspects and a special tasks related to the teaching of prayer. Today we do it in various ways through: retreats, days of recollection, catechesis, scientific and publishing activities, running retreat homes, parishes and sanctuaries as well as missionary work.

In all of this, however, we are called above all to prayer which is life, and to teaching life to be a prayer!
