We live very simply, supporting ourselves as much as possible by the work of our hands. Much of our work is creative and artistic: spinning, weaving and liturgical sewing, writing icons, painting prayer cards, bread baking, and candy making. We also grow most of our own vegetables and maintain a trout pond. But Carmel has traditionally depended on the generosity of our friends who help make our life possible, since the work we are able to do in the time we have each day outside of prayer is not sufficient to provide for our necessities.
We joyfully invite you to be a foundational part of our little Carmel by being an instrument of God’s Providence. We assure you that Our Lord who is never outdone in generosity will bless your kindness to us as only God can!
