The Carmelites of the Province of the Most Pure Heart of Mary join the Church in celebrating National Vocation Awareness Week. We ask you to join us in our efforts to bring future vocations to the Church and the Carmelites by taking a few minutes to watch the video messages from our Carmelite brothers, Michael Joyce, Roberto Mejia and Roberto Reyes. May God continue to sustain us with shepherds who help guide us to God’s love in our lives and in the world.

Becoming a Carmelite


Bro. Ulises Garcia, O.Carm.

The root of ‘vocations’ is ‘vocare’ – to call out.  Any vocation is God calling out, “Hey! Let’s go this direction.”  That’s half the call.  The other half is what you respond: “Okay, let’s go!” or “Hold it, I’m afraid!” or “Are you sure about this?”  Maybe we can help you with that second half.
