In the silence of your heart, do you wonder if the Lord is calling you?

Join us for a very special week with the Carmelite Sisters

Come and See Retreat
Alhambra, California
May 20-23, 2013

Meet the Carmelite Sisters and glimpse into our life in Carmel.

For single women, between the ages of 18 and 35, who would like to take some time to seriously discern if God may be calling them to the Religious Life.

Contemplative Tradition of Carmel flowing into the works of the apostolate:
Healthcare ~ Education ~ Retreat Work

Our life is characterized by:

  • A life of prayer and union with God
  • Devotion to Our Blessed Mother
  • Praying for Priests
  • A deep love for Jesus in the Holy Eucharist
  • Steadfast fidelity to the Magisterium of the Church
  • Commitment to works of the Apostolate in ecclesial service.


Learn more about our Life of Consecration through:
Conferences on Religious Life and Carmelite Spirituality, Times for Prayer and Reflection, Question and Answer Sessions, Experiencing the Daily Apostolic Life of our Sisters, and Enjoying times of Recreation with the Sisters.
The retreat will be conducted at the Motherhouse of the Carmelite Sisters in Alhambra, California.
