Holy Mother, St. Teresa of Jesus founded 12 convents in just 13 months! Now, as then, the work of Prayer, Presence, Evangelization and Pastoral Care are of utmost importance. Todays Discalced Carmelite Friars carry on the work handed on to them by St. Teresa of Avila, St John of the Cross and many less known holy men and women of the Carmelite tradition. Join in the Carmelite work with an annual gift to the Discalced Carmelite Friars of the California-Arizona Province. Click here to donate!
The men who are called to serve us as priests bring to the Church a bounty of talents and skills. Their lives are devoted fully and selflessly to proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ and ministering His love to all. Answering the Call is a dedicated campaign to: 1) secure the House of Studies by retiring the construction loan debt; 2) Provide for the Immediate Educational needs of Novices and Friars for the next several years; and 3) to establish an Educational Endowment with a minimum of $1 million.

St. Therese of Lisieux said, "My mission - to make God loved - will begin after my death,...I will spend my heaven doing good on earth. I will let fall a shower of roses." We too can spend our heaven doing good on earth! Your legacy gift is a literal shower of roses. By including the Discalced Carmelite Friars of the California-Arizona Province in your Will, Estate Plan or as a beneficiary of your insurance policy or retirement funds, you help to secure a place in this Western United States for generations of men to continue in the Carmelite Tradition of St. Therese, our Holy Father St. John of the Cross, and our Holy Mother St. Teresa of Jesus.
