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         
Carmelites keep the needs of all in
their prayers and in their hearts.
Would you like to join us in 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 and altar breads are
distributed. In addition, garden produce of all kinds is grown
for the sisters' own needs. Housework and sewing alternate
with their hours of prayer, reflective reading and recreation.
