A House of Prayer for All Peoples


Our need is a simple but strong monastic building – a structure that will endure and provide security; together with needed space for work areas and sufficient rooms for the candidates who are waiting to join us! To accomplish this, we have begun a capital campaign to raise the funds necessary to make our concept a reality, to the praise and honor of Almighty God.


In 1958, Bishop Thomas McDonough invited Nuns from the Carmel of Philadelphia to come to Savannah for the explicit purpose of praying for "priests and in particular for a deepening of faith in the few and scattered faithful," expressing his firm belief and concern that efforts to evangelize the Diocese of Savannah would bear fruit only if supported by prayer.

As Discalced Carmelite Nuns, we pray especially for priests and for all the needs of the church: for the poor and unemployed, the sick and suffering, the missions, and for all those who call or write us with their special needs and intentions.

In the midst of our troubled world, we are a presence of unceasing prayer – striving to be ever more united with Christ Jesus who "went apart to pray" and often "spent the night in prayer."

We are truly and deeply committed "day and night" to a constant and earnest life of prayer which is the very heart of our Carmelite Rule and the essence of our monastic life.

Capital Campaign

 

Since our arrival in Savannah 55 years ago, we have been living in a make-shift situation: in an inadequate, uninsulated cinder-block dormitory which is very limited in space, poorly constructed, and costly to maintain. We also lack an appropriate Entrance – our area where we receive visitors was formerly a two-car garage and has no private rooms to meet with those who come and wish to speak of private matters.

Our need is a simple but strong monastic building – a structure that will endure and provide security; together with needed space for work areas and sufficient rooms for the candidates who are waiting to join us! To accomplish this, we have begun a capital campaign to raise the funds necessary to make our concept a reality, to the praise and honor of Almighty God.

We humbly place our vital need before each of you and ask for your financial assistance in providing for the ongoing life and mission entrusted to our Carmel.

With our grateful love and prayer,
Sister Mary Elizabeth OCD, Prioress
and your devoted Carmelite nuns †

When it comes to fantasy football we all hear several pieces of advice. Don’t draft quarterbacks early as that position is deep. Make sure to get at least one top running back in the first couple of rounds as that pool will dry up quickly.Jadeveon Clowney Jersey Don’t ever take a kicker or defense/special teams until the last few rounds. What about wide receivers?

It’s no secret that the NFL is a passing league. It seems every rule change over the past 5-10 years has been geared toward the benefit of throwing the ball and putting points on the board with quick, exciting plays. In fantasy,Lamar Miller Jersey we are slowly but steadily seeing a switch to point per reception (PPR) leagues. This puts further emphasis on pass catchers early in our drafts. Some also view receivers as safer picks early in drafts because they don’t take the hits that running backs do and thus have a better chance at staying healthy over a long season.J.J. Watt Jersey Throw in the fact that in most leagues you will start three WRs and a possible fourth in the flex position and we can start to understand why the position is so important.

Antonio Brown will more than likely be the first WR taken in your league as he is about as steady as they come. There was a time when catching more than 100 balls in a season would raise everyone’s eyebrows.Brian Cushing Jersey Well, Brown has averaged more than 120 receptions over the past four seasons. That’s just incredible when you throw in that over that span he also averaged 11 touchdowns and 1579 yards.DeAndre Hopkins Jersey Some might want to debate that Odell Beckham Jr. should be picked first overall but that seems like a reach. While it’s true that he’s dynamic and a highlight reel waiting to happen, he has only eclipsed 100 receptions once in his career (101 last season) and the addition of Brandon Marshall will give Eli Manning another true receiving threat.
