If you are a young, single, Catholic woman between the ages of 20 –35, and have a great desire for a life of prayer, silence, and solitude, as well as an open, and teachable heart, good health, and common sense, a deep love for the Church and for souls, then you may be one of those blessed ones called to live the life of a Discalced Carmelite Nun.
