A reflection of our contemplative consecrated
As this website is our main contact with the digital world, we
want it, in some way, to reflect the characteristics of our
Carmelite life to the world. We hope that the text and photos
that we have chosen to share with you illustrate the richness of
our way of life, and our love for Jesus, Mary, St Joseph, our
Carmelite saints, the Church and the world.
This site is designed, built and maintained completely by the
Sisters of the community. We are not professionals, and so we
have kept the site simple in design. We like having the ability
to update and maintain the site ourselves, so that we are in
more direct contact with you, our visitors.
Of course, having a presence in the digital world means that
we must adhere to various laws about privacy and data
protection. This has been a steep learning curve, and we are
still learning more. We want our website to be compliant in
every possible way, so that you can browse safely and
Finally, working on this website is a reflection of our
Carmelite approach of being “hermits in community”.
Computer work is by nature solitary, but we meet and
dialogue with each other to plan and share our skills and
expertise. In community, everyone’s talents are valuable!
Where one Sister is good at text, another is better at
photographs and another with technical aspects!!
Enjoy browsing our site, and may God bless you
and all your loved ones.
