How are my donations used by the Carmelites?
Monies raised by the Society of the Little Flower and given to the Province of the Most Pure Heart of Mary support the wonderful work of the Carmelite missionaries, as well as the formation and education of the many Carmelite Seminarians and lay catchists God is calling to serve the Church. The Carmelites serve in over 50 countries around the world, with missions in developing countries such as Brazil, India, East Timor, Mexico, Kenya, and El Salvador, just to mention a few. The Society of the Little Flower also generously supports many Senior Carmelites, Cloistered Carmelite Nuns, parishes in poor areas of North America and several retreat houses of Carmelite Spirituality. More information about how funds are used is available on our Statement of Accountability page.
