The Carmelite Nuns of Armstrong do not have an active apostolate. Their life is a life dedicated to prayer, silence and solitude and so require financial support from the outside community.  These supports come through different sources:

The Volunteers

Carmelite Guild



Please, remember us in your will!


These are generous people who help in the accomplishment of the many tasks around the monastery, either financially or through active participation. They are most appreciated for their contribution.


The Carmel of St Joseph Guild is an organization of people coming together to contribute to the support and maintenance of the monastery while sharing in the spiritual benefits of the Community.   This help is done through individual memberships (dependent children included).

Following is a list of the spiritual benefits attached to the memberships:

50 Masses annually for living and deceased members
Memento by the Nuns after Holy Communion on Wednesday
Same memento for deceased members each Saturday
Perpetual Novena for the intentions of members
A share in the merits and indulgences of the Daily Rosaries and Way of the Cross of the Nuns
