Our Charism:
is other than being Contemplative like the first Carmilitans, is also active and in street Evangelization like the first Franciscans in poverty. We make the Evangelical vows of total Poverty, Chastity for the Kingdom of God, and Obedience to God through the Word and through our Holy Mother Catholic Church.

Living in distinctly separate cloistered convents from our Friars (sisters having a cloister designated strictly and uniquely for the respective Nuns; brothers visa-verse) we live a semi contemplative life in prayer, where later leave the convent Evangelizing the streets together with our brothers in total poverty, simplicity and professionalism, with the mission of inviting people back to the Sacraments of the Holy Confession and Holy Communion…

according to the Word of God and
