Our Web Site is now almost fully updated. Please review the new pages and updates. Please also spread the work about becoming a Friend of Carmel as the Sisters embark on their journey to build a new monastery building to replace the old, outdated and deteriorating building.
The next update phase for the website will be to add the missing Newsletters. That should be done by August if all goes well.
And please check the page here for items the Sisters need. They will soon number 25 and the pantry is harder than ever to keep stocked.
May God Reward You

Then I understood that I hadn't been born for earthly things but for eternal ones. Why go on denying this fact any longer? Only in God has my heart found its rest. With God my soul found itself fully satisfied, so that I desire nothing in this world but to belong to Him completely.
