Meet the Community

bishop with us 4

We are a community of apostolic hermits who follow the Carmelite rule of St. Albert and who have taken vows under the Bishop of Killala, Ireland as a diocesan institute of consecrated life. Our life is a rhythm of prayer, work and celebration. We spend two days a week and one week a month alone, when we take time for personal prayer, work on intellectual or creative projects, do quiet manual labour and enjoy our natural surroundings. We take care of our houses and gardens, and share our contemplation in limited apostolic outreach. On Sundays, we celebrate the Sabbath together with our guests.
