Through a life of prayer, mission, and community, the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm seek to render loving service to the elderly in the spirit of the foundress, Mother M. Angeline Teresa.
The Carmelite spirit encompasses genuine compassion for the aged, seeking to provide the highest quality care in a home-like, loving atmosphere. Founded in 1929, the Carmelite Sisters currently staff twenty nursing homes in eight states and Ireland, with approximately 160 sisters striving to share joyfully and generously the Gospel message and bring Christ’s love and healing to the aged and infirm entrusted to their care.
Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm have convents in Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois, Massachusetts, Iowa, Florida, and Dublin, Ireland.
Admission requirements: young women generally between the ages of 18 and 40 in good physical and mental health who have a high school diploma or its equivalent, plus a sincere desire to serve Christ through a ministry to the elderly.
