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.
Visitors are welcome. Our next Aspirant (beginning formation) classes begin in January. For more information contact Jan Steckler 360-622-2676 or Barbara Blomberg 425-353-9613.
**Due to COVID restrictions, we are currently not able to meet or accept aspirants at this time, but do call and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you have about the Discalced Carmelite Seculars.
