The Carmelite Sisters D.C.J. have been in Canada since 1913 serving in the diocese of Toronto, St. Catharines, and Calgary.
We are a contemplative apostolic congregation of Pontifical Rite, combining the prayer life of Carmel with an active apostolate in each of our homes. We live a simple gospel lifestyle sharing all things in community. Our Carmelite D.C.J. spiritual life is centered in the Eucharist, the Divine Heart of Jesus with Mary, and the Carmelite Saints as our inspirations and guides.
We welcome those who value community, a life centered on prayer, service, and unconditional love of God and neighbour. "Does this seem impossible?" Within the great "Carmelite Family" we have many Carmelites who have done just that over the past 700 years "All is possible with God".
We the daughters of Blessed Maria Teresa of St. Joseph (1855-1938) imbued with her spirit:
"To See God in All"
Seek to give our all to God by serving our brothers and sisters with our unique Carmelite charism of prayerful love and service.
If you desire to share our spirit of prayer, community and mission, come with us as we bring the message of Jesus to a grief stricken world that hungers for meaning, justice and compassion.
I invite you now to get to know us and to join us on this spiritual journey - adventure. Place your trust in the Lord and "launch forth into the deep".
Yours in the Heart of Jesus,
Sister M. Veronica
