Carmelite Monastery Quidenham, Norfolk, NR16 2PH

We are a community of Catholic women who have come together from many different backgrounds and previous religious experience to live together the Teresian Carmelite vocation. We endeavour to witness to the gospel through a complete gift of ourselves to God in a life of love and service. Inspired by the spiritual way marked out for us by Saint Teresa of Avila, our primary mission in the Church is one of contemplative prayer and intercession.

“We are here to learn, on behalf of all, what it means to believe in Jesus,
to take Him as our only Saviour,
our healing and our holiness”

We are here to learn, on behalf of all, what it means to believe in Jesus,

to take him as our only Saviour, our healing and our holiness.

"
from a statement of the Quidenham Carmelites
"

You ask me what my work is in Carmel.

I could answer that for the Carmelite there is only one occupation: to love, to pray.

"
from the Letters of Saint Elizabeth of the Trinity
"

God wills that we communicate grace to each other through prayer with great love.

"
from the writings of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux
"

The Church needs people who pray… and who will, from their illumination,

send light and grace over the whole Church.

"
Pope Saint Paul VI
"

The Lord does not look so much at the greatness of our works as the love with which they are done.

"
from The Interior Castle of Saint Teresa of Jesus
