Guidelines

for those who would like to participate

in the public holy mass:

  • Because the status of the pandemic in the USA has not subsided, despite the relaxing of certain restrictions, we continue to remind everyone of the obligatory guidelines and recommendations.  
  • We kindly request that everyone be careful, to wear protective masks during Holy Mass each day, both Sunday and weekdays, and to disinfect your hands when you enter and leave the church.  
  • We continue to recommend that you receive Holy Communion in the hand, and persons who receive in this way will receive first.  Let us take special care above all of those people who are older than 65, so that they may feel safe.  
  • All Holy Masses will continue to be celebrated only in Church (the chapel will remain closed).
  • From the beginning of January 2021, you DO NOT NEED AN INVITATION to participate in all Holy Masses.

  • No Confession during Sunday Holy Masses


We thank you for your understanding,

patience and cooperation.

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!
