Two hours each day are given to personal quiet prayer in the Choir.

Saint Teresa of Avila, Mother and Foundress of the Discalced Carmelite Order, describes prayer as 'conversation with Christ". The loving relationship with Jesus which develops in this way gradually comes to pervade the whole day. This is what a Carmelite is meant to be - living prayer in the Heart of the Church. This is our vocation.
