Holy Annunciation Monastery belongs to the Order of Discalced Carmelites, whose contemplative charism  is the legacy of  its founders, Saint Teresa of Avila and Saint John of the Cross. This Order is dedicated to a life of prayer. We are the only Carmelite Monastery in the Western Hemisphere belonging to an Eastern Catholic Rite.
