WELCOMING YOU TO CARMEL
Discalced Carmelite nuns seek union with God by a consecrated life of prayer and self-sacrifice, striving to live the evangelical counsels as perfectly as possible in the spirit of their foundress, St. Teresa of Avila, and St. John of the Cross. Carmelites aid the mission of the Church by offering this contemplative form of religious life especially for priests and missionaries, as well as for the salvation of souls. The Morristown Carmel gives special attention to priests and all those who teach the Catholic faith.
The Discalced Carmelites of Morristown are cloistered Sisters. The Morristown Order was founded in Morristown, New Jersey in 1926. Over the past ten years we have grown and expanded in New Jersey and additionally have started a new foundation in Malta.
The Discalced Carmelites of Morristown, NJ are currently accepting new postulants for our monastery in Morristown and in Malta. If you would like more information, please contact us!
