Christ is Risen and walks among us, Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

CCA is an association of Monasteries of Discalced Carmelite Nuns. The Carmelite Order is part of the Roman Catholic Church.

Carmel is as old as the twelfth century hermits who inhabited the caves of ancient Palestine and as new as the longing for "more" that stirs in your heart today. Its mission is to be a prophetic presence in the world that awakens and supports the realization of the life of God in all people and in all creation. Its way is contemplative prayer.

We are Discalced Carmelite women and members of the Carmelite Communities Associated, one of the American groups within the world-wide family of Carmelite women and men.
