A small Community of Traditional Catholic Carmelite Nuns in Ireland was evicted from their land last year, following the enforced removal of all their wooden buildings. 

Since then the Nuns have purchased a new piece of land with an old farmhouse which is in the process of being repaired. They are in need of your help to complete this project in order to provide them and future aspirants with adequate space to live their Contemplative Religious Life of prayer and penance for the spiritual benefit of all.

In March of this year, the Carmelite Nuns of the Holy Face moved from their former Hermitage in West Cork after being denied retention on their humble wooden buildings and evicted from their own land by the local County Council. 

The Providence of God and the kindness of many benefactors has enabled them to purchase land with an old house in the hills of West Cork, Ireland. When fully repaired, the farmhouse will serve as their main building.  

At present the nuns are using a 20ft converted shipping container to serve as a temporary chapel where they come together for community prayer for you and your family. They are using a garden shed as a temporary kitchen and have no piped water or electricity. 

The Carmelites do what they can to support themselves according to the teachings of St. Paul and their Rule of Life. However as they must put nothing before the Work of God, they depend for the most part on the free-will offering of benefactors. No donation is too small and all benefactors are remembered in the daily prayers and sacrifices of the Nuns. 

Never has there been a greater need for women and men to dedicate themselves to prayer and penance for the conversion of poor sinners and the salvation of souls. A holy Archbishop once said:

"Without monasteries, without the examples of the contemplative Religious consecrated to the continual praise of God, the Church will never recover from the present crisis. In order to traverse this present crisis, there must be more monasteries, more souls willing to devote their whole life to prayer and intercession." 

Ireland, which was formerly known as "The Land of Saints and Scholars", has fallen from its former glory with the official acceptance of abortion and sodomy as well as other crimes which call down the wrath of God upon society. 

While many brave individuals and families living in the world are in the frontline of the battle to openly fight and resist the evil and lies of governments and mainstream media, the Carmelite Nuns of the Holy Face play the vital role of intercessory prayer for all God's children. 

Like Moses on the mount, they continuously fight with the uplifted spiritual arms of prayer and penance. Night and day they cry to the Lord for the suffering members of the Church so that He would bestow His grace on all to fight and resist the evil and return to the Lord. 

As a way of showing his moral and spiritual support to Mother Irene and her Sisters in Ireland, His Grace, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano.(former Papal Nuncio to the USA), sent her his Apostolic blessing and encouragement.  https://carmelitesholyface.com/support 


Your own moral and prayerful support is much appreciated, as well as any financial contributions you may be inspired to make. The Carmelite Nuns assure you of their grateful prayers for all of you who contribute to this worthy cause in whatever way you can.
