Background and Context of the project
The farm Mount Carmel was a donation to the Sisters of the Holy Cross. The original intention of the donor was that it should serve the old sisters and be used as a place of formation. Due to dwindling numbers of sisters the congregation decided to offer the farm to the Diocese.
The Diocese chief concern is to be faithful to the wishes of the original donor. The care of old sisters will only be part of the future, as elderly sisters will find a haven of peace at Mount Carmel.
