Devotion to our Carmelite Saints

Our Carmelite saints are guides on the journey within and we remember each of them during the year as their feast days come up, and also on November 14th which is the liturgical feast of all the Carmelite Saints. They are our models of life and protectors. We especially remember our Holy Founders - St. Teresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross and we celebrate their feast days in a solemn way in Community. Individual Sisters may have particular devotion to other saints, but we find that St. Thérèse is a favourite with us all, and also with many of our friends, so we celebrate a special Mass in her honour on 1st October each year! 

Although not strictly a Carmelite, we lovingly venerate St. Joseph, spouse of the Virgin Mary and patron of the Order and also of this monastery. St. Teresa always encouraged her nuns to pray often to St. Joseph and she dedicated the first monastery of her reform to him.
