Carmelite Monastery, Wolverhampton

The Midland Carmel
A Hidden Life
Behind the enclosure door of
Carmel lies a hidden world of
great beauty, goodness and
truth. Here, sheltered from
much distraction, noise and
stress, God is found and loved.
A Life of Prayer
The sisters' chief occupation is contemplative
prayer. Each day they attend Mass and recite
the Divine Office (the Prayer of the Church)
composed of hymns, prayers, scripture
readings and the Psalms - the ancient songs
of Israel. Carmelites also spend two hours in
silent prayer every day.
To support this life of prayer, the sisters
engage in many different types of work. Art
work, illuminations and greeting cards are
designed and printed for sale. Garden produce
of all kinds is grown for the sisters' own needs.
Housework and sewing alternate with their
hours of prayer and reflective reading.
Carmelites keep the needs of all in
their prayers and in their hearts.
Would you like to join us in prayer?
