Welcome to the Secular Carmelite Community
--Columbus, Ohio--

A word from our president:

A warm welcome to you as you visit the website for the Chapter of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Secular Order of Discalced Carmelites located in Columbus, Ohio. It is a rather long and formidable name carrying a very simple message:

"...the deepest part of ourselves is reserved for God alone."

(Welcome to Carmel, pg. 5)

Hopefully, our website will assist you in finding your way to that place within where God resides -- and may Our Lady of Mt. Carmel be your guide.
