  • Who We Are

    Mission: to know God so that he may be known.

    Discalced Carmelite Seculars are

    practicing members of the Catholic Church who,
    under the protection of

    Our Lady of Mount Carmel
    and inspired by St. Teresa of Jesus

    and St. John of the Cross,

    make the commitment to the

    Discalced Carmelite Order

    to seek the face of God

    for the sake of the church and the world.


    We are a canonically-established,

    growing community

    with more than forty members.
