Saint Joseph Secular Discalced Carmelites

San Francisco, California




The St. Joseph community of Secular Order of Discalced Carmelites follows the Gospel of Jesus Christ within the Roman Catholic Church, according to the tradition and inspiration of Mount Carmel.

Our members are lay women and men who, in union with the Carmelite Orders of priests and nuns, are called to a shared journey of encounter with God, through fidelity to the Gospel, to our professed promises and the practice of contemplative prayer, and to Sacramental life of the Church.

We were canonically erected on July 18, 1998, the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and we are administered by a Delegate Provincial of the Discalced Carmelite Fathers of the Saint Joseph Province, headquartered in San Jose, California. We generally meet monthly at Saint Ignatius Church in San Francisco.
