Hurricane Ida


Covington Carmel was hit by Hurricane Ida. Falling trees damaged the monastery and property. The Sisters have electricity and sufficient supplies, but phone service and internet are unreliable. There will be no public Mass until Monday, November 1st (Solemnity of All Saints).

Please continue to pray for all those affected by the Hurricane.

Mission Statement

The vocation of the Discalced Carmelite Nuns is a gift of the Spirit. Through it, they are called to a hidden union with God in friendship with Christ, in familiarity with the Blessed Virgin Mary, and in an existence in which prayer and immolation blend into a great love for the Church. Their commitment to continuous prayer is sustained by faith, by hope, and above all, by divine charity.
