Like most Carmels, we rely heavily on the support of the faithful but we also engage endeavors for self-support. At Holy Annunciation we operate a Bakery, the Carmelite Kitchen, with a Christmas -New Year "mail-order season". We grow as much of our own food as possible and "put up" hundreds of pounds of garden produce annually. Each year our gift shop is becoming increasingly popular - offering imported icons, candles made by the Sisters and an ever growing assortment of cards, designed and printed by the Sisters. Catalogs are available and the Community's newsletter, Myrrhbearing, is also offered on request.
