Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Discalced Carmelite Nuns of Sioux City, Iowa.

We are a small community of contemplative nuns of the Roman Catholic Church who live a simple traditional cloistered lifestyle totally dedicated to God. Ours is a life of prayer and sacrifice which is our particular apostolate in service of the Church, praying for God’s people, especially His beloved priests. Our life of prayer is fostered by the silence and solitude of the cloister in harmony with a joyful sisterly community life.

You are welcome to contact us with your prayer requests and vocation inquiries, to participate in our novenas, or to order altar breads. God bless you!
