The Discalced Carmelite Nuns came to Savannah, Georgia in June of 1958 at the invitation of Bishop Thomas McDonough. They were asked to establish a contemplative monastery for the express purpose "to pray for all the needs of the diocese, the priests and all the faithful".
The nuns of Our Lady of Confidence have been doing that faithfully - every single day - for 55 years now. A wonderful witness of fidelity and humble service!
The sisters would like all Catholics in the diocese of Savannah to know that they are very happy to receive your special prayer requests. Your requests are taken very seriously, and the sisters intercede for us every single day. You can send your requests to:
Our Lady of Confidence Monastery
11 West Back St.
Savannah, GA 31419
If you prefer to write to the sisters online, they have a website with a PRAYER REQUEST page: click here
The sisters sent a letter to all priests and parishes in June of 2013. We reprint it here in slightly shortened form.
Don't forget: Nativity parish also has a prayer list in the weekly bulletin, as well as daily prayer requests on our Twitter feed @Nativitydarien under hashtag #NativityAtPrayer
