We, the Carmelite Nuns of Covington, feel blessed to have found such a place suited for a life of prayer, silence, and solitude in peaceful wooded surroundings amid lovely gardens. Our heartfelt gratitude goes to many friends who have helped us and continue to help make it possible for us to live our life of prayer in service to God, the Church, and the whole world.
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.
Open to the public daily:
- Morning Prayer – 6:45 AM
- Mass – 7:15 AM
Please join us in praying the Angelus each day at noon for peace in Ukraine and for all who are suffering from the destruction and violence. You can also click here for updates on Carmelite News in Ukraine.
