Secular Order Discalced Carmelites (OCDS) are men and women in the Catholic Church who are called to a deeper spiritual life. Under the protection of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and inspired by St. Teresa of Avila, St. John of the Cross, and St. Thérèse of Lisieux, we make a commitment to the Discalced Carmelite Order to seek God for the Church and the world. The Secular Order Carmelite longs to seek God through prayer, to find Him, and to share Him with others.
