Ways to support our life of prayer

The most important way to help our Carmel is to PRAY for new vocations to our community, and to join us in praying for priests and the hierarchy, that they may be holy and courageous apostles for Christ.

Our Current Need

Our friends frequently ask if we have a special project that needs funding. In early 2020 we had planned to finish our bell tower, and replace our gate and a section of our enclosure wall. COVID put everything on hold for a few years, but at last we are ready to resume construction! Rising costs have made it impossible to complete the entire project, but with the aid of Divine Providence we hope to clad our  bell tower with brick–it is currently painted concrete block–and add a cupola with a Cross to cover the bells this year. The video below showcases the entire 2020 project. Since then we have installed a simple wooden fence to secure the enclosure until we can afford to build a permanent wall.
