A Catholic charity serving our suffering and persecuted brothers and sisters around the world since 1947

Support the Carmelite Sisters in the Czech Republic

Even before the pandemic, the Carmelite Sisters found it hard to support themselves. 

For this reason, we have been regularly providing financial assistance to the Carmelites in Prague for many years. The pandemic made their lives still harder. They were forced for months to close their little shop, close to the Prague fortress, in which they sold their own religious handiwork, with a resulting sharp drop in income, while the little online shop the Sisters opened did very little business.

We are committing to supporting these nine Sisters once again in their life and apostolate. Will you help?
