Community Life

Carmel3

“With zeal have I been zealous for the Lord God of Hosts!”

Community Life is characterized by:

-Very special devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary and Saint Joseph

-Joyful community life of which the prioress is the center, and to whom her daughters give their filial obedience

-An intensity of silence throughout the day, with little speaking outside of recreation

-A strong desire to identify oneself with Christ Crucified by a life of complete self- sacrifice

-A dynamic, shared search and thirst for authentic contemplation and perfection as outlined by Our Holy Parents and Founders, St. Teresa of Jesus and St. John of the Cross

-An intense desire and striving to live the spirituality and embrace the heritage of Our Holy Founders
