Discalced Carmelites of the Infant Jesus of Prague and St. Joseph
The sacred cloister of our Monastery is a mystical garden enclosed where hidden lives of prayer and contemplation abound. Here we live to love Jesus fr those who do not love him, pray for those who do not pray, bring peace to those who do not find it and salvation for those who seek it. We are Carmel, we are Teresian and we are all Mary's.
