IS YOUR CALLING CALLING?

A vocation to Carmel is a personal calling from God.

Saint Teresa of Jesus, the first woman Doctor of the Church and our Foundress, wrote Constitutions that have led many to great holiness. Discerning a vocation begins with an attentiveness to the Holy Spirit, followed by a journey of prayerful discovery. Seeking guidance from someone who knows authentic Carmelite life, reading the lives of Carmelite Saints and deepening your commitment to prayer, are good ways to begin.

The formation program includes postulancy, two years of Novitiate, and at least three years in temporary vows before Solemn Profession.

“Once you are joined to the Lord, you become as omnipresent as He is. Instead of offering assistance in one particular place, like a doctor, nurse or priest – in the power of the Cross you can be everywhere, at every scene of misery” St. Edith Stein

Sr. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross OCD
