WE ARE NOW HOMELESS!
We are a small* community of Carmelite Nuns faithful to the unchanging Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church. We spend our life in unceasing prayer and penance for the salvation of souls and to make atonement for the sins of mankind; including of course our own shortcomings.
Above is a photo of us standing beside the foundation where our main cabin stood before the local County Council ordered the removal of our Oratory and Nuns' quarters. We are now living in 2 tiny garden sheds,10x8ft in size.

We humbly beg your assistance, both prayerful and financial. You can contact us directly through our website: carmelitesholyface.com/donations
We are in urgent need of funds to repair an old derelict house so we may be able to continue our Contemplative Life of prayer in the silence of solitude and in Community for you, your family, and all peoples. Please send us what you can. God bless and reward you. Please consider starting a campaign on our behalf or becoming a campaign team member.

*We are small because we are only a new community. We are zealously faithful to the True Catholic Faith according to Holy Tradition prior to Vatican II.

PLEASE NOTE: We are NOT, and never have been, in any way associated with the Palmar de Troya group in Spain who share a similar title as ourselves.

Technical GSG problem solved!
April 13, 2021

Dear Friend and Benefactors,
Due to some technical problem in our GSG campaign page, many of the donations sent to us were not displayed for several days. The benefactors' email addresses were also not displayed on our settings. Due to this, we are unable to contact individual donors to thank them. If you have sent in a donation to us very recently, please be so kind as to send us your email address. We would very much like to communicate with you personally to thank you and send you a small packet of sacramentals as a token of our gratitude. We can be contacted via our website: https://carmelitesholyface.com/contact 
May God bless you all and reward you a hundredfold for your charity.  

Great Progress!

Surréxit Dóminus Vere, Alleluia! 
Dear Friends and Benefactors,
Due to the help you have given us by your prayerful and financial support, things are progressing rapidly in our new Hermitage of St. Joseph. With God's blessing and the powerful patronage of St. Joseph, a JCB digger has been on site performing some necessary groundwork: burying waterpipes and electric cable ducking, laying down hardcore for the driveway, clearing around the old house in preparation for repair work, turning the soil for our vegetable garden, poly-tunnel, and much more. Two weeks ago, two generous benefactors donated and helped us plant 10 apple trees, so our orchard is already in place!
There is enough work here for a dozen nuns. Alas, we do not even have half that many, so we must apologise for failing to keep you more regularly updated on our progress.

Please do continue to pray for us, and support us in whatever way you can. We are deeply thankful to you all, and assure you of a grateful remembrance in our prayers, as well as God's blessings for yourselves and your loved ones. With every gift of 25 euro or more, we will gladly send you a packet of sacramentals if you write to us with your full postal address. We are here for you and are always praying and making intercession for you before the Tabernacle of our Eucharist Lord and Risen Saviour Jesus Christ. To Him be highest glory and praise forever. 
Your Carmelite Sisters in Christ,
Mother Irene & Community

Building Blocks for Saint Joseph's Hermitage!
March 5, 2021

Ave Maria
Dear Friends and Benefactors,
We want to keep you all up to date with our progress. Last Monday we were able to move our three 10x8ft  garden sheds (our temporary lodging), to our new land in the mountains. Both of us spent the last few days levelling the sheds and refitting the galvanised roof. So far we have no volunteers to assist us, save the invisible help we are receiving from Saint Joseph. 
As you can see in the photos, we have ordered some building blocks so as to begin repair work on the old house as soon as possible. We do not have sufficient funds to hire building contractors to re-roof and rebuild the house. Much of the funds we received from generous benefactors in the last thirteen months have gone towards the purchase of this new land. 
We ask you please to continue supporting us as best you can. Please also share our link with family and friends on social media so that we may be able to repair the old house and have at least a room to serve as an Oratory for the Blessed Sacrament. 
We thank you all from the bottom of our heart for all your support and we assure you of our unceasing prayers for you and your family. With every donation we receive over 25 euro, we will happily send you a packet of sacramentals if you send us your postal address.
May God bless and repay your generosity a thousandfold!
Your Sisters in Christ,
Mother Irene & Community

Ave Maria
Dear Friends and Benefactors,
Thank you very much for your most generous donation. We have been working round the clock the last two days as the hauliers have moved our three small sheds to our new land. Thank God we have the weather on our side now and we are both in good health. We shall post another photo shortly. We would not be able to do this work if it were not for your kindness and that of our other generous benefactors. Please continue to keep us in your prayers and share our GiveSendGo link with family and friends so we may be able to have the old derelict house repaired. 
God bless and reward you a hundredfold and be assured of our prayers for you and your family.
In Jesus' Name
Mother Irene & Sister Anne Marie
