Discalced Carmelites of the Infant Jesus of Prague and Our Lady of Guadalupe

The order of Discalced Carmelites was founded in 1562 by Saint Teresa of Jesus. Our community of Discalced Carmelite Nuns came from Durango, Mexico in 1934. We are dedicated to the apostalate of prayer, at the service of all humanity, the Church, and particularly for the Church of San Antonio.

We are a small community, sharing who we are and what we have with one another, helping one another along the path of holiness. It is Christ who has invited us to live this way of descipleship. He is our life, His Mother Mary is our Mother, guide and companion, whose virtues we strive to make our own, as she forms us in the image of her Son. We live in simplicity, in the silent presence of Christ, working to earn our living, in solidarity with the poor of the world. It is a joyful life of loving and giving.
