Carmelite nuns are a religious order within the Roman Catholic Church. They belong to the world-wide Order of Discalced Carmelites, which also comprises friars and lay members. Within the Carmelite Family, the nuns have a particular vocation to dedicate their lives entirely to prayer.

There are 11 Carmelite Monasteries in England, 3 in Scotland and 1 in Wales. Over 200 nuns live in these 15 Carmels. For a map of our communities, click here.

In each Carmel the sisters live, work and pray together, witnessing to the reality of God and his love for the world. At the heart of each day, is the celebration of the Eucharist, and the sisters also recite the Divine Office and spend two one-hour periods in silent prayer.

Carmelite nuns commit their entire lives to God, as a radical response to his call. They believe that prayer is a powerful and effective response to the needs of the human family.

It is an uncompromising choice.

The nuns are prepared to stake their lives on it.
