The Carmelite order originated on Mt. Carmel in Israel in the year 1209 A.D. The word discalced means “barefoot” and signifies going back to our roots by simplifying our lives and recognizing our dependence on God.
What is our mission and vocation?
Our mission is to pray for the needs of the church, the people in Oklahoma and the world. We strive to be attentive to God and to the needs of the world around us.
How do we live?
We live our lives in community, loving and serving one another. We have developed a rhythm of work, prayer and living life together.
