Dear Friend of The Carmelite Institute,

We live in a busy and fast-paced world where many people have little time for God. The Carmelite Institute of North America (C.I.N.A.) was developed to provide ongoing spiritual formation for all those who seek to deepen their relationship with God. As a non-profit organization we provide collaborative and very dedicated efforts by the Carmelites from both branches of the Carmelite Order, O.Carm. and OCD in the United States and Canada. The Institute promotes the following of Jesus Christ through education and study of Carmelite tradition and spirituality and to make them relevant to the contemporary world. As we have grown we are able to provide many services including:

  • Online Carmelite Webinars
  • Days of Recollection
  • Carmelite Pilgrimages
  • Bi-annual Symposium
  • Collaboration with the Carmelitana Collection (Carmelite library in Washington, D.C)
  • Social Media Outreach
  • Online Courses

We are currently financed by our generous donors and are appealing to you for your support, both in prayer and financially. Your generosity will ensure that we are able to sustain our current initiatives of providing these resources to members of our Carmelite family and others worldwide. With your help, we seek to continue in developing programs that will strengthen, inspire and support faith journeys as we walk in the footsteps of Jesus Christ. Thank you in advance, for helping C.I.N.A. to enable others to grow in Christ. May Our Lady of Mount Carmel continue to Bless You.
