“The Mission of the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm is not only to staff and operate up-to-date homes for the aged, but to bring Christ to every elderly person in our care. Bringing Christ means giving them His compassion, His interest, His loving care and His warmth. It means inspiring the lay people who work with them to give the same type of care.” – Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa, O. Carm., Foundress

Have you ever wondered what inspires someone to enter religious life? If so, you might want to consider getting to know the Carmelite Congregation better through an Affiliate Program that is offered by the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm. In this program, interested young women are able to participate in the Sisters’ life of prayer, community and in their active ministry on a volunteer basis. Their activity stems from their prayer, and it is their intimate union with Jesus that allows them to go forward and continue their healing ministry to all those entrusted to their care.

“It has been a joy for me to be a Carmelite Sister. It enables me to place my gifts, talents and time to the service of others, especially the elderly with much love and joy.”

“It is certainly a privilege for me to exercise the spiritual aspect of my life living at St. Patrick’s, especially as I support families, as we all pray for a loved one about to make their final journey.”
-Sister Paul Anthony
“Our community is a diverse union of individual members who bring their gifts and talents for the service of God. By themselves the gifts are beautiful and unique, as each individual, but when they are collective they reflect a beautiful witness of who God is.”
-Sister Theresa Marie
