Hello, Summer!

Dear Friends,
As we quickly approach the muggy heat of “Arkan-sauna” we hope you are keeping cool and enjoying the beauty of God’s glory blossoming forth! We recall the rainy months of early Spring. Our gardens loved it!

Below are some shots of what we’ve been up to lately. We mentioned already in our blog the latest highlight of our year — the national meeting of Discalced Carmelite Nuns.

The women’s discernment group “Listeners of the Lord” held their monthly meeting here at our Carmel back in May. What a wonderful group of young ladies who are open to a vocation to religious life! If you are interested you can contact Laurie Nick at dolrlistenersofthelord@gmail.com.

You are cordially invited to join us here in our chapel for our Novena of Masses to Our Lady of Mount Carmel from July 8th to 16th at 7:30 p.m. We hope to see you soon!

United in prayer,
Your devoted Carmelite Nuns of Little Rock

Pruning dead tree branches, just like the Lord prunes us!

Paolo and Gracie know how to handle the hot weather.

Listeners of the Lord young women’s discernment group pray and share about their journey to seeking God’s will for their lives.

Newly ordained priest of Little Rock Diocese Father Stephen Hart said mass in our chapel. He is one of five new priests of our diocese!
