We are a community of Secular Order Discalced Carmelites located in Cincinnati, Ohio, and canonically established at Saint Teresa of Avila Church, 1175 Overlook Avenue, Cincinnati, Ohio 45238. We exist to provide formation for Roman Catholic lay people and diocesan clergy who are called to live a life of Carmelite spirituality in the world and within the context of a community. Our monthly meetings are held in Avila Hall at the address above. Members are those who are at least 18 years of age and are faithful, practicing Catholics in good standing with the Roman Catholic Church. We hold monthly formation classes, including the following: a Visitor's Class for those who wish to visit and learn more about Carmelite spirituality and our way of life, an Aspirancy Class, formation classes for Temporary and Definitive Promises, and an ongoing seminar for fully professed members.
