Kopie von Marienschwestern vom Karmel

In the Carmelite rule, the spiritual principles our order follows, it says, "Some work has to be done by you. . . ." This rule gives us the freedom to deal with the needs of our time. Most important is our Being, not our Doing.

    Our mission as Sisters of Mary of Mount Carmel is to accompany young people part of their way and help them develop a successful life.

    We base our actions on Christian values such as love of our neighbour, attention to the worth of each person, and the affirmation of all life.

  • Meditation / Retreats / Seminars

    In the silence of meditation and contemplative retreats, it is possible to find the way to ourselves and to God.

    In word, celebration, and deed we want to praise God and give witness to His love.

  • Residence / Housing

    Where can I live then? This reasonable question comes up if one's life changes in connection with a move to another area, whether it be because of training, work, . . . .
