The carmelite monastery is more of a place for prayer than an attraction. It does have a beautiful garden but if you go here, it should be because you want to pray. Still it's worth a visit........

This is a really nice chapel and I went there on a Sunday afternoon because of Lee Den's information here that there is a rite going on. Today there was a real cermon happening (not a mass though, as the priest pointed out) which started at 4:30pm and it was beautiful with the nuns performing extensive gregorian chants. I'm very...

I go there when my heart is heavy. I sit there quietly. And there is peace that most often would calm my troubled heart. No my problems do not immediately go away, because some problems take time to sort out. But I will have a moment of peace...

Great place to reflect about the past, assess the present, and plan the future. I do not really go to church religiously since I believe in having a personal relationship with Christ BUT I love and enjoy going there. I prayed for a loving husband and a healthy, happy baby.....Faith in God can truly move mountains.

I come to this place often not only because I live near the monastery but because I can have my quite time while praying, meditate and just pour my heart out to God. A Dawn Rosary is held every 1st Saturday of the month and a holy procession of the Virgin Mary.
