Tugas utama Karmelite

Tugus utama Sister Karmelite adalah berdoa. Doa adalah cara kaarmelite menjalankan penginjilan mereka, dan melalui doa, mereka menjangkaui seluruh dunia, gereja, mua-mudi, orang yang sakit dan yang tua; dan terutamanya para paderi. Mereka menyerahkan seluruh kehidupan mereka untuk melayani Tuhan melalui kehidupan berdoa, pengorbanan, berkerja keras dan kesenyapan.

Prayer is the Carmelite Nun's form of apostolate, and through it she reaches out to the world, the church, the young, the sick and elderly but most especially, to priests. They offer whole of their life to serve God through prayers, sacrifice, manual labour and silence.
