"The two-fold end of the Congregation is to combine the practice of the apostolic with the contemplative life by following the way of the prophet Saint Elias, the leader and father of all Carmelites. The Sisters strive to be zealous for the Lord, God of Hosts, whose glory they shall promote in the seclusion of the spiritual mount of Carmel and in ministry to the aged and infirm."- Consuming Zeal
