Welcome to the Discalced Carmelite Community of Sioux City, Iowa!
We are a small community of cloistered contemplative religious who live a simple lifestyle totally dedicated to God. Ours is a life of prayer and sacrifice which is our particular apostolate directed toward the service of the Church, praying for God's people, especially His beloved priests. Our whole life is permeated by prayer, which is fostered by the silence and solitude of the cloister. Our silence and solitude, in turn, is balanced by a joyful sisterly community life.
