Discalced Carmelites

Also known as the Discalced Carmelite Order, Ordo Carmelitarum Excalceatorum, and Order of Discalced Carmelites. Its mother-house is in Rome, Italy, and is established throughout Europe, North and South America, and India. Although the principal end of the Order is the contemplative life, it has an active side as well and undertakes missionary work with great success. Its houses, especially in many parts of America, are centers of apostolic life. See also
