The original monastery was built in 1894 and enlarged in 1925 when it became a seminary. The Monastery chapel is also the Canadian Shrine of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux. The side altar on the right of the chapel is dedicated to Saint Thérèse.
The chapel has a unique beauty because of its monastic simplicity. The main altar is the most prominent feature of the chapel and attracts the immediate attention of the visitor. The right side of the chapel is the shrine to St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus, the Little Flower. On the altar is a magnificent reliquary from France with two adoring angels supporting the arc containing the relics of St. Thérèse.
Mount Carmel is home to the Canadian National Shrine to Saint Thérèse of Lisieux. The Monastery has both an indoor and outdoor shrine for Saint Thérèse. The Indoor shrine is located inside the chapel and may be visited during chapel hours Mon-Sun 9am to 5pm. The outdoor shrine is located on the grounds in the grotto and is accessible year round.
Mass is celebrated at 11:15 am, Monday to Friday in the Shrine Chapel.
Mount Carmel Spiritual Centre reviews
I love this place. I go to pray here regularly and for silent retreats and Spiritual Direction. Wonderful, helpful, encouraging staff.
Beautiful little chapel, they have daily mass at 11:15. They have a religious gift, with wine tasting the wine is produced from grapes grown on their property. ,
