The Discalced Carmelite Seculars, together with the Friars and Nuns, are sons and daughters of the Order of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and St. Teresa of Jesus. We are called to live our vocation in allegiance to Jesus Christ through friendship with the One we know loves us and in service to the Church. We seek to be diligent in meditating on the law of the Lord, give time to spiritual reading, participate in the Church’s Liturgy, both the Eucharist and the Liturgy of the Hours, and seek interior silence and solitude in our life of prayer, which is the heart of a Carmelite vocation.

Under the protection of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and inspired by St. Teresa of Avila, St. John of the Cross, and St. Thérèse of Lisieux, we make a commitment to the Discalced Carmelite Order to seek God for the Church and the world.

The Stella Maris OCDS Group meets at Our Lady Star of the Sea on the 3rd Sunday of the month.
