Support the Carmelite Sisters in the Czech Republic
The Feast of Saint Joseph on March 19, 2021 was a day of special joy for the discalced Carmelite Sisters in Prague. On this day, Sister Elizabeth Miriam took her solemn permanent vows and bound herself forever to the Carmelite family. Now the convent has seven fully professed Sisters and two young Sisters still in formation. Their average age is astonishingly low, with all of the Sisters aged between twenty-five and fifty-one.
Even before the pandemic, the Sisters found it hard to support themselves, and for this reason we have been regularly providing financial assistance to the Carmelites in Prague for many years now. 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. In normal times, many of their customers are tourists who come across the shop while exploring the city but who would otherwise not be likely to actively seek them out on the Internet.
We are committing to supporting these nine Sisters once again in their life and apostolate, this time with a contribution of $8,300.
