Transforming the World by Prayer

The Carmelite monks were recently asked to prepare a message to college students at Newman Centers around the country, so we are happy to share that post here: Newman Connection. Please share this inspiring message with your children and grandchildren. Experience shows that there are many vocations to the religious life and priesthood out there, we just need to encourage our children and grandchildren to consider how Jesus and Mary are asking them to serve the Church and the world.

Mountain Property and an Exceptional Realtor

Today we want to acknowledge the amazing generosity and goodness of a dear friend to the monastery and the foundation: Rita Lovell of Canyon Real Estate. Rita has devoted her time and talent to the founding of a New Mount Carmel over the last six years, traveling throughout the state and considering numerous possibilities of land for the monastery.

Rita Lovell

Rita is one of those "unsung heroes" of this project, so we are happy to acknowledge her dedication and constant assistance that helped us ultimately locate the perfect property for the living of the monastic life. We are eager to share this beautiful, solitary place with all of you as a place of retreat; we know that you will absolutely love this wilderness of peace and contemplation. Rita, thank you for your dedication!

For those of you thinking of having a little place near the New Mount Carmel, we cannot recommend Rita enough as a woman of integrity, of dedication and of loving service. She is a true friend and we are confident that if she could find the monks such a perfect place, she can find anyone the right spot. Please visit her website here: Canyon Real Estate



It is with overwhelming joy, and absolute confidence in the Lord, that we happily announce that Bishop Etienne has arranged to break ground at the New Mount Carmel on Wednesday, May 11, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. Each of you is cordially invited to attend this monumental occasion for the Catholic Church in the United States and the future of cloistered monastic life. We ask for your continued generosity as we prepare for this great occasion, trusting that "God has lots of money" to make this monastic dream a reality. Plan to join us in May...we are hoping to have Bishop even climb up on the excavator and really break ground!

Fr. Prior and Fr. Sub-Prior prepare for the ground breaking.
