We Need Your Help


The Discalced Carmelite Fathers of Dallas have received the mission to teach and preach the way to enter deeper into a living relationship with Jesus Christ. Our call is an 'ecclesial' call, a communal call, a call to form a family of believers that continues to trust in the Apostolic truth that has been faithfully handed on to us.

As a mendicant (begging), religious order we rely on the generosity of our donors. We receive no direct financial support from any Diocese. We need your personal and financial support to continue in our mission.

Would you be able and willing to help us on a monthly basis? Your monthly gift of $25 or $50 or more will help us tremendously. Whatever the amount of your gift, it is greatly appreciated and will be carefully stewarded.
