We follow the compassionate Christ of the Gospels as we serve in parish ministry and in the care of retired and ill priests, with special care, concern and reverence. The call to Carmel is a call to serve the Church through prayer and sacrifice. The Order of Carmel dates to its spiritual founder, the prophet Elijah on Mount Carmel, 900 years before Christ.
