Welcome to the Carmelite Sisters by-the-Sea web site.  We are a cloistered, contemplative community of women, totally consecrated to Jesus Christ.  His love has called us together as sisters, to pray for the needs of the Church and for the world.


Our life with God draws us to deepest empathy with the sorrows, the joys and the hopes so confidently entrusted to our prayers each day.



We lift these concerns daily to the heart of God, Who is Love, and Who understands our every need.
