OCDS - Secular Order

The Secular Order of Discalced Carmelites (OCDS) is an integral part of the Carmelite Order. They live according to the Rule of St Albert and have their own Constitutions. They are composed mainly of lay people, but also of secular clergy.

Like the Friars and Sisters, prayer is central to their lives, they spend time each day in prayer and in the recitation of the Liturgy of the Hours. Members of the Secular Order try to attend daily Mass whenever possible. They are especially called to live a life modelled on Mary in allegiance to Christ and encouraged to study the writings of the Carmelite saints of the Discalced Order, especially St. Teresa of Jesus and St. John of the Cross. They attend a meeting of their community each month.  See for OCDS Locations >>> see here.
