Mount Carmel Monastery, La Plata

A statue of the Mother Mary stands proudly at the Monastery. The inscription reads, "I'M THE MOTHER OF GOD AND THIS IS HIMSELF AND HE'S THE ONE YOU'LL ALL BE WANT IN AT THE LAST."

The monastery was founded in 1790 by four Carmelite nuns. It was the first monastery of religious women in Colonial America. The monastery is still the active home of the discalced Carmelite Nuns of the Carmel of Port Tobacco. The Carmelite life is a call to prayer, tempered with hard work and shared community.
