The Little Flower, St. Thérèse of Lisieux, wrote: “In the heart of the Church, I will be love!” It is love that calls each of us Carmelite Sisters to a profound and intimate friendship with Jesus. Jesus is our focal point of every minute of every day, filled with prayer and keeping company with Him through quiet contemplation. His grace infuses our souls which we share with all His children through loving service. This is our Carmelite vocation – loving service to God’s people overflowing from an ever deeper union with Him through prayer, and bringing Christ’s light to others is the beauty of consecrated religious life!
2017 is rapidly drawing to a close, and many of you might be considering year-end charitable donations that can be included in 2017 tax returns. Rest assured that the generosity you have already shown us over this past year is remembered with heartfelt gratitude. Your generosity has helped us bring Christ’s light and love to those we serve. But in our troubled world, there are many who have yet to experience Jesus’ love. Your kind donation will have a lasting impact as we can bring Christ to a thirsty world, and more and more young women will see and experience the true beauty of the consecrated religious life.
Please consider us if you are planning to make additional charitable gifts this year. Please be sure to mail your gift so that we receive it by December 29th or fill out the form below. We also gratefully accept your prayers and know that you and those closest to you are remembered in the daily prayers of all the Carmelite Sisters.
