A vocation to Carmel is a personal calling from God.


Saint Teresa of Jesus, the first woman Doctor of the Church and our Foundress, wrote Constitutions that have led many to great holiness. Discerning a vocation begins with an attentiveness to the Holy Spirit, followed by a journey of prayerful discovery. Seeking guidance from someone who knows authentic Carmelite life, reading the lives of Carmelite Saints and deepening your commitment to prayer, are good ways to begin.

The formation program includes postulancy, two years of Novitiate, and at least three years in temporary vows before Solemn Profession.


If you are between 18 and 35 and believe that God is calling you to Carmel, please write to
