Mount Carmel has the privilege of being the home of the Canadian Shrine of St. Therese. The Carmelites here at the Monastery invite you to come on pilgrimage with a parish or community group to learn more about her life and her spirituality. The simplicity of her “Little Way” is a much needed message for our complicated lives. The Little Flower has a powerful teach for all of us.
