Carmelite Conversations is a weekly radio program hosted two members of our community: Mark Danis and Frances Harry. The program centers on the teachings of Carmelite Spirituality and their application to our busy modern lives. It provides counsel on how to live the Carmelite call to combine contemplative prayer with service to the Church, while at the same time providing guidance on how to make progress in holiness.
