History of the New Mount Carmel

            The New Mount Carmel Foundation, Inc. was organized in 2009 with the sole aim of seeing the Monks of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel live their life of prayer and intercession for the world at the New Mount Carmel.  Inspired by the monk’s need for a new monastery as they rapidly grow in number and convinced that God is at work in this community, the New Mount Carmel Foundation was created to purchase suitable mountain property in the vibrant Rocky Mountains and to construct a gothic monastery, for the continued growth of the community, the endurance of their monastic tradition, and the full realization of their mission in the Church and in the world.

            The New Mount Carmel Foundation, through the generosity of a few benefactors, was able to purchase the mountain property for the monks' monastery in the fall of 2010. Presently the foundation is working with the diocese of Cheyenne on preparing to break ground on the monastery structure in the near future.

            The New Mount Carmel Foundation is served by a Board of Directors, laymen who have a deep love for the monks and a firm desire to see the monastery established where a New Mount Carmel may blossom here in America.  With this end in mind, the Foundation seeks charitable contributions from the Catholic faithful, generous individuals, and charitable foundations.  The Directors have a moral and legal obligation to be good stewards of these most generous gifts, investing the funds wisely and growing them until the total funds necessary to construct a monastery have been raised.  The Foundation’s Directors generously donate their professional talents and expertise to eliminate any expenses that might reduce the funds available to attain this vision. Having purchased a solitary, mountainous property in keeping with the monastic tradition, the Foundation presently works to construct a monastery for the protection and preservation of the Carmelite monastic life.

            The Foundation exists to assist not only the Carmelites, but also the lay faithful. By ensuring the building of the monastic structures necessary for the temporal needs of the monks, these Carmelites will be able to live their life of worship and sacrifice. Through the fruitfulness of this spiritual life, the monks are empowered to care for the many needs of souls. This spiritual fatherhood is centered on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the ministering of the Sacraments, and the other activities of daily monastic life.

            The New Mount Carmel Foundation, Inc. receives no financial support from the Diocese of Cheyenne. 

 

           As professional businessmen, the Directors of the New Mount Carmel Foundation are mindful that every one of us wants to leave his mark in this world. In the last one hundred years, similar projects have only been undertaken a handful of times; this is a unique opportunity to impact the lives of thousands upon thousands, perhaps even millions of souls.  The construction of a gothic monastery requires courage and, yes extensive resources too.  The New Mount Carmel Foundation is seeking magnanimous and generous souls to assist in realizing the Lord’s vision here.  When we simply consider the magnificent monasteries of Europe and the patrons who built these glorious edifices that stand still today, we realize that the patrons of a monastery are people of deep faith.  By their generosity the patrons of old not only provided for us by building monasteries to house monks and nuns to pray for the generations to come, but they also built a worthy dwelling place for our Eucharistic Lord.  It is no wonder that the present monks and nuns now living in the ancient monasteries of Europe continue to pray for the repose of the souls of their founding patrons.  The Monks of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel will do likewise! 

           We each must one day breathe forth our last breath and render an account to the Lord.  Wouldn’t it be a wonderful thing if Jesus told us on that day that we built His house and the house of His servants by helping to fund a New Mount Carmel of America?  When we ponder the generations and generations of vocations that shall be fulfilled within the monastery’s walls and the countless Holy Masses that shall be offered within the Church, what would we not give to see the Foundation’s vision realized? We hope that God may be calling you to this great work for surely the Lord has indescribable graces and blessings in store for those generous souls who help His religious..

            Whether making a small contribution or a one-time gift, please know that the Foundation is committed to being faithful stewards of all of the resources entrusted to our care.  As a 501(c)3, non-profit corporation, all donations are tax-exempt in-so-far as permitted by law.  An acknowledgement letter from the Board of Directors will promptly be sent to you once your donation has been received and processed.

            The New Mount Carmel Foundation, Inc. is keenly aware of its responsibility to its donors. The Board of Directors is committed to eliminate or minimize any expenses that would reduce the funds available for the purchase of mountain property and the construction of the monks’ monastery. By written request and if necessary, the Foundation is prepared to supply its tax-exemption letter from the Internal Revenue Service and a copy of its most recent 990 Filing.  In an effort to protect donors’ privacy, the New Mount Carmel Foundation, Inc. WILL NOT sell or distribute the names and contact information of its donors under any circumstances whatsoever. 

            May God reward your generosity and fill you with joy as we together found a New Mount Carmel in America!  Know that each donor is prayed for by name in the monastery’s dining room; we truly value and appreciate your charity as a gift from God Himself.  THANK YOU!
