Praised Be Jesus Christ!

Welcome to the birthplace of devotion to St. Therese in the United States!

The Carmelite Monastery in Philadelphia is located at 1400 66th Ave. It was founded in 1902, less than five years after St. Therese died.  Three young women from Philadelphia had entered the Boston Carmel, and, in 1902, they returned to Philadelphia with two nuns from the Boston Carmel to establish a Carmelite Monastery in Philadelphia.  The details of this foundation may be read in Carmel in Philadelphia: The First Hundred Years, available at the monastery.

Holy Sacrifice of the Mass

Available every Saturday and Sunday at 8:00am. Free parking in the lot on 66th street.
