The Carmel can welcome you for a long period as a “volunteer”.

Volunteers are invited to share the community life by attending services, living at the rhythm of Carmel, and working with the Community, doing primarily farm work. The time you take and donate as a volonteer is also a time of silence and peace, a time of personal reflection stimulated by the prayer of the Community and discovering a different way of life.

It is possible to meet regularly with a sister to discuss your experiences and ask questions.

What kind of work will you be doing ? Volunteers will be involved in our gardening activities or helping out in the monastic guest house. You will be housed and have your meals with the other guests and no financial contribution will be
asked of you.

You can contact us using the form on the “Coming to the Carmel” page to tell us about your project or to ask for more information. You can also call us.
