Welcome to the online home of the Carmelite Province of St. Elias!

Since the arrival of the first Carmelite missionaries in New York in 1889, we have grown into a far-reaching faith community that serves the needs of our brothers and sisters in Christ. We are custodians of the National Shrine of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, and we serve in parishes, schools, hospitals, nursing homes, and many other places where we are needed. We also have vibrant and growing overseas communities in Vietnam and Trinidad.

Please explore this site to learn about Carmelite history and spirituality, join in our Masses and prayers, support our ministries, and request Enrollment Cards and spiritual gift items.


Thank you and God bless!

Father Michael Driscoll, O.Carm.
