Ministry in Prayer

Our ministry is prayer.  It is the source of our life.  We cannot live without it.  Through it we deepen our friendship with God and find his loving presence in the world.

  •  It is the very vocation of a Carmelite to bear witness to a life of prayer.  A special part of our prayer is time spent with God in silence.
  • Sustained by the word of God and the sacred liturgy, we are led to live in intimate friendship with God.
  • In prayer, we are called to a ‘hidden union with God’, in a form of life and fraternal sharing in which contemplative prayer and action combine to become a single apostolic service of the Church.
  • By growing in the virtues of faith, hope and above all charity, we deepen our prayer life, and come to resemble more closely Christ himself.
