Community Of Al Fayoum: Community

We are an international community currently made up of sisters of four nationalities: Egyptian, Chilean, Brazilian and French. We also experience a beautiful fraternal communion with our Carmelite brothers present in Egypt.

Being the only monastery of Discalced Carmelites in Egypt, we recognise the importance of our presence. The monastery occupies a place of great significance here today. The people around us call it “Baraka”, “the blessing”.

We are called here, in a special way, to bear witness to fraternal love. To be witnesses of God’s love through small gestures, especially with those closest to us: workers, Muslims, and all those we meet.
