Welcome to the website of the Carmelite Monastery in Concord, New Hampshire. We are contemplative religious women called to live in the Presence of God and to pray for the needs of the Church and the world.
June 28 - July 2. Carmelite Symposium. St. Teresa of Avila's Gift to the 21st Century at the University of St. Mary's of the Lake in Mundelein, Illinois. www.Carmelstream.org.
July 13 - 16. Triduum in honor of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
October 15 - 17. Triduum celebrating the 500th birthday of St. Teresa of Jesus.
Saint Teresa of Jesus, holy mother,
wholehearted servant of love,
teach us to walk with determined fidelity
along the path of interior prayer,
attentive to the presence
of the Blessed Trinity,
God dwelling deep within us.
At the school of Mary our Mother,
strengthen within us these foundations:
a genuine humility,
a heart free from attachment,
and an unconditional love for others.
Share with us your intense
apostolic love for the Church.
May Jesus be our joy,
our hope and energy,
an unquenchable fountain,
and our most intimate Friend.
Bless our Carmelite family.
Teach us to make your prayer our own:
"I am yours; I was born for you.
What is your will for me?" Amen.
Prayer in honor of the 5th centenary of the birth of Saint Teresa:
