We strive to imitate the life of Jesus through Mary, Mother of Carmel, with love and active prayer wedded to contemplative action. We endeavor through simplicity of life and the willing acceptance of modest tasks embraced in the darkness of faith to combine the contemplative and active life in the missionary spirit of our founder, Father Edward Soler, and of our first sisters for the needs of the Church, especially in Oklahoma.
As women of faith and hope in eternal life, we zealously seek to witness the presence of God in the person of Jesus Christ through personal contemplative prayer, compassionate concern for others and vowed community life. We call ourselves and others to this presence and realization of Christian holiness through an on-going conversion of attitudes toward a more wholistic life.
The Eucharist is the summit and source of our charisms. Through our charism of intercessory prayer and sacrifice, we embrace our Carmelite call to pray for the People of God, particularly priests and other ministers of the Church who proclaim the Gospel. We are challenged to conversion, reconciliation, personal responsibility and accountability. Through our charism of Christian education, we choose to serve in our ministries the special needs of those who experience poverty, spiritual deprivation, moral disorders and indifference. We believe we are empowered by the Holy Spirit to work together as church to bring about the Kingdom in each other, in our work and in the world.
