Secular Order of Discalced Carmelites (OCDS)

We are a community of lay persons who live according to the spirit of the Order of Discalced Carmelites in our secular state of life.

Our calling is to live in the world an evangelical life of fraternal communion instilled with the spirit of contemplative prayer and apostolic zeal according to the example and teaching of the Carmelite saints, especially Saint Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross, and Therese of Lisieux.
