[quote name='ThyHolyLove' post='996099' date='Jun 3 2006, 11:32 AM'] Sorry to be a bummer, but the Newark monastery of the Dominican Nuns closed in 2003. It is now a formation house for the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal.Also, the Washington D.C. sisters are moving to Virginia and building a new monastery. [/quote] Thank you! :)

The idea about a convent database is a great one! That would be really great.

I think the Carmelites in New Franken and Denmark are one in the same convent. They just built a new convent (for four or five sisters; this convent cost 12 million dollars I think) and now are only in denmark. Now dont' quote me, but I think this accurate.

They did move from the New Franken address to Denmark. The convent is one of the most beautiful things I've seen in my life; I got to tour it before they moved. My understanding is that there are more than five sisters. Someone who is fairly close to them told me 12, I think. I was surprised, though, because that's more than what I'd heard. I've heard them sing the divine office before, and their voices sounded young. (You can't see them even through the grate because of the way the chapel is positioned.)

[quote name='Gemma' post='995993' date='Jun 3 2006, 04:38 AM'] Visitation nuns in Washington, DC? I know there used to be one in New York City or thereabouts (NOT the Second Federation Brooklyn monastery--I'm talking a First Federation monastery).

When did this happen? To which federation do they belong?

Blessings,

Okau, I added some more and also made some corrections per your information... These are just Women's communities... If there are more additions that should be included or corrections, feel free to tell me! :) Thanks all! (This list isn't entirely different than the first one... it just has a bit more added to the bottom... I have not included some communities still... it isn't the complete women's list yet...)

I can vouch for the orthodoxy of both the Discalced Carmelite Nuns of Santa Clara and the Poor Clare Nuns of Los Altos Hills. :)

They are both great communities... and growing! Each cloister added 2 postulants last year, thanks be to God! :lol_grin: :lol_grin:

Discalced Carmelites by the rules of St. Theresa can only have at most 21 members to a monastery. This was/is to keep a family type atmosphere in a house of prayer.

Schenectady and Pittsford Carme merged last year so now they are all at Schenectady. Also FYI there are a few Carmels that have more than 21 sisters.....They have to obtain permission from the Holy See to be able to have more sisters.

There are Poor Clares in Greenville SC. I was going to do a retreat with them last year but couldn't. I don't know how Orthodox they are but I think they wear a modified habit. They have a website. www.poorclaresc.com.

Deborah] 8:25 pm: I have noticed that there is usually no mention about Visitation
Nuns on this site. Well, they are out there. They now consist of two Federations.
The First Federation are cloistered nuns. They retain the traditional habit. The
community I am most familiar with is located in Tyringham, MA. Their web site is
www.vistyr.org
[Deborah] 8:26 pm: The Novice Mistress is Sister Alice Marie.
[Deborah] 8:27 pm: If I knew how to do it, I could attach pictures of their monastery
and of the recent ceremony of Solemn Profession of Sr Bernadette Therese, VHM.
Can anyone out there help me?

Okay… *gulp* here it goes!

Mr. Zak has me looking for all sorts of contemplative communties to be prayer warriors for the Here I Am Lord conferences... I think I may have a list of just about every Discalced Carmel in the US, all of the Trappists/Cisternians, Cathursians, Sister Adorers of the Precious Blood, along with a good number of Benedictines, Poor Clares, Dominicans, and a number of other smaller orders. I think I will list the communities and the name of the abbey/monastery/whatever (if I have it) and location so you all can tell me what communities are faithful and orthodox (or not...) and if I am missing any that should be there! (A major thanks to Gemma and her site; it helped big time with this!)

There are cloistered Benedictines:

Regina Laudis Bethlehem, CT--full latin office w/ Gregorian Chant

OSB's affiliated w/ solesmes in Vermont--Gregorian chant also at the Monasteryof Mary Immaculate--full habit

Petersham MA nuns--habit and full office.

OSB nuns on an island in Washington, habit, office, raise livestock

Abbey St. Walburga CO habit, office, farming, livestock

St. Emma Monastery in PA - do work in monastery; I don't know if they're cloistered but their mission is retreats, full habit and office.

I don't want to be wet blanket, but there are already many sites for 'orthodox' orders listings--institute for religious life, vocations.com, and religiousministry,com, which includes all comers but which is also very complete.
