Discalced Carmelites of Mary Immaculate and St. Mary Magdalene
The Discalced Carmelite Nuns of Flemington follow the ideal of life established by St. Teresa of Avila to support the Church by their contemplative lives of prayer. Their loving fidelity to the Magisterium is lived out in the cloister where prayer, solitude and the common life in a Marian spirit nourish an apostolic zeal.
