Carmelite nuns belong to the Order of Discalced Carmelites. In Britain, over 200 sisters live in 14 Carmelite monasteries, throughout England, Scotland and Wales. We follow the inspiration of St. Teresa of Avila, our Spiritual Mother, who believed that the most fruitful contribution she and her daughters could make for the good of the Church and the world was to develop a profound personal relationship with Jesus, in prayer, silence and sacrifice, offered for the salvation of all. This ideal is lived out in community life modelled on the friendship between Jesus and His disciples. The Eucharist is at the center of each day. Work, both household and remunerative, is sanctified by the full recitation of the Divine Office, two hours of silent prayer, and spiritual reading, as well as periods of recreation together. This calling both demands and supports the total gift of self to our loving God. Member of Compass. Contact us.
