About Us

The New Mount Carmel Foundation, Inc. was organized to serve the temporal needs of the Monks of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel by bringing together donations from disparate sources and facilitating the purchase, development and ongoing operation of a new monastery for this rapidly growing community of young Monks. Little formal or organized support exists for the monastic orders, so this Foundation has undertaken a serious endeavor in service of an identified need: to receive donations from well-intentioned faithful toward the purchase and subsequent development of a remote mountainous parcel of real property near Cody, Wyoming.

The establishment of this Foundation will greatly assist the Catholic Faithful in the practice of their faith by ensuring an earthly institution to provide for the congregation and housing of devout Carmelite Monks to serve the spiritual needs of us all through the ministry of the Sacraments, their prayers and good example. Mountainous land was purchased near Meeteetse, Wyoming in 2010 and construction on the monastery buildings began in 2014 and is in progress today.   You can learn more about the building project here.

New Mount Carmel Foundation, Inc. has no financial relationship or legal obligation to any other entity. The Board of Directors take no salary or compensation for their service. 100% of their time is donated to the cause.

You can learn more about the Carmelite Monks here and about Mystic Monk Coffee, the monastic industry by which they support their way of life, here.
