The Northern Province which includes Wisconsin, Indiana and Michigan dates back to 1912. The Provincial Motherhouse is based in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin and was established in 1916.
The Mission of the Carmelite Ministry of St. Teresa (CMST) is to provide a formation and enrichment program in the Carmelite tradition serving persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Our goal is to empower individuals to grow and mature in their physical, emotional, social and spiritual lives.
Our new family style residential center includes living space for sixteen adult females. The facility also offers ample community program space providing opportunities for evening and weekend activities including prayer, Mass, the Sacraments, arts and music classes.
