Carmelites are now meeting monthly in Boise

The Secular Order of Discalced Carmelites is now meeting monthly in Boise. Meetings are at St. Marks, after morning mass, second Saturday of each month. Visitors are welcome.

I have a great fondness for the Carmelites, inspired by the writings of Teresa of Avila who was instrumental in my conversion to the faith. Before this chapter was founded, I made the observation that the Dominican Third Order was also contemplative. As it is often put, we are to share the fruits of contemplation for the glory of God and the salvation of souls. We are contemplative, just noisy contemplatives!
