Vocations Any baptized Christian from a church with Apostolic Succession, who is over the age of 25 and has experience in life such as stable employment, an active ministry towards the people of God, is in good standing with their Church, who desires to live a more Christ centered life by intense prayer and reflection is invited to contact the Vocation Director for more information regarding this community. There is no upper age limit as long as the person is able to live the life and is self supporting. We do take priests - who have a clean background check and have permission from their Bishop to try the religious life as a Carmelite of Mercy. We also encourage women to join- we are not a "male-only" community.
If interested in pursuing the lifestyle of a Hermit of Mercy of our Lady of Mount Carmel please contact: Frater Robert-Julian, HMC, Prior Monastery of the Most Merciful Savior at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We only accept candidates from the United States and Canada at this time.
